Adult learner admissions open house set for March 15

February 19, 2016

ERIE, Pa. — Penn State Behrend invites adults who are considering starting college or returning to their studies to attend an admissions open house on Tuesday, March 15.

The open house will begin at 5:30 p.m. with an exhibit fair in Roche Hall, located in the campus' School of Science complex. Seminars on adult learner services, admissions and financial aid will follow.

Representatives from student support offices, including Admissions, the Academic and Career Planning Center, and Veterans Affairs, will be available to meet with prospective students.

Enrollment in any of Penn State Behrend’s 41 undergraduate degree programs is open to new or returning adult learners. Faculty members from each of the campus' four academic schools — the Black School of Business, School of Engineering, School of Humanities and Social Sciences, and School of Science — and its nursing program will be on hand to answer questions and talk about learning and career opportunities. Programs eligible for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) funding also will be discussed.

New admissions applications and Penn State re-enrollment applications will be accepted at the open house. Those who attend the event will have their application fee waived, a savings of up to $50.

There is no charge to attend the adult learner open house and no obligation to apply. To register, call 814-898-6700, email or visit
