Admission Requirements: First-Year Students

Students with no prior collegiate work are selected by the admissions office to enter directly into the major based on high school performance and SAT scores. On Penn State’s application form, high school students must specifically designate landscape architecture. Freshman admission applications are submitted during the fall, as processing starts in September for those seeking entry the following fall. Applicants are encouraged to submit a completed application by November 30, though spots remain available until our freshman class numbers are filled.

Materials needed to support freshman applications are specified by the admissions office,
