It is not too late to apply to Penn State New Kensington for fall. The campus' admissions office is holding Application Day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday, Feb. 17 for high school students and adult learners.

The New Kensington admissions staff will be on-hand to guide prospective students through the application process. Those who complete the application will receive a waiver for the $50 application fee. Additionally, applicants to New Kensington may receive an admissions decision within the week if they bring a high school transcript and their SAT or ACT scores.

Students and their families are invited to stop by the admissions office between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Appointments are recommended but not required. To learn more about the campus, a series of videos titled “It’s Your Time” provides testimonies from current students, alumni, faculty and staff. These are available on the campus web site.

Prior to visiting the campus in person, prospective students can also access the new interactive virtual tour. The online feature highlights campus students, facilities and activities. High school students and adult learners can get a feel for the campus via a home computer or mobile app. After previewing the campus, future Penn Staters can use the navigation buttons to schedule a visit or apply online.

Users can explore different areas of the 72-acre campus using four tour options -- walking; panoramic; videos; and photos. The guided walking tour starts at the Lion Shrine and continues to the campus hot spots, including the Art Gallery, Computer Center, Forum Theatre, Conference Center, Café 780 and Athletics Center.
