A-8: STATUS OF APPLICANTS WHO TOOK COLLEGE-LEVEL COURSES DURING THE SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL

Procedure:

  1. An applicant who is a high school senior, planning to graduate and receive a high school diploma at the end of the academic year, will be considered for admission as a freshman even though he or she may be taking baccalaureate level courses at an accredited college or university on a part-time or full-time basis. An applicant who is a high school senior and is matriculated as a degree candidate at an accredited college or university in an early admission program will also be considered for admission as a freshman.
  1. All baccalaureate degree courses may be evaluated and, if acceptable, used for degree credit at Penn State. Whether a high school does or does not accept college courses for meeting the requirements of high school graduation does not alter the fact that an individual has performed and received college credit; this credit should not be denied to the individual who has clearly earned it.
