We require all students to self-report their high school grades in place of sending a transcript. You must create a My Penn State account in order to self-report your grades regardless of which platform you used to submit an application.
Within your My Penn State there will be a section called Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR). You will be directed to a link to complete the SRAR.
We strongly encourage you to obtain an official copy of your high school transcript to ensure accurate entry of your coursework completed and grades earned. The SRAR will include all of your high school coursework from grades 9-11 and your grade 12 schedule. If your senior grades are available when you enter SRAR, you can enter them at that time.
Penn State has moved into a test-optional evaluation process for the 2021 admissions cycle. Test-optional means that students will have the opportunity to decide whether they would like us to include SAT or ACT exam scores in the evaluation of their application. If you would like to include your scores in your review, please use the SAT & ACT codes below to send your scores to Penn State.
Penn State’s SAT Code: 2660
Penn State’s ACT Code: 3656
Your application will be complete after all these materials are received. You can check the status of your application and obtain all your latest Penn State updates by logging into your MyPennState account.
