Change of Campus

Change of Campus

Undergraduate degree-seeking students admitted to the University as a first-year student may begin at one of twenty Penn State campuses in order to make progress in the foundation courses required of first and second-year students.
Students generally declare their academic major at the end of their second year of enrollment during the entrance-to-major process. If the student applies for a major that is not offered at the student?s current location, the student will be required to select an approved location during the entrance-to-major process (policy D1, D2).

Summer-Only Change of Campus

Students may register at any Penn State campus for summer sessions; therefore, no change of campus is required.

Temporary Change of Campus

Students may request a temporary change of campus for one semester only (fall or spring) for academic or personal reasons (policy D5). Students requesting this change must document clear and compelling reasons why this request should be considered.

If the request is approved:

  • It is valid for one semester only
  • The student's location will automatically change back to their current campus at the end of one semester.
  • The student will retain the same academic adviser while at the temporary location.
