Visit Penn State Engineering

A great way to decide if Penn State Engineering is right for you is to visit us! Choose from an organized visit or plan one that fits your needs perfectly.

Spend a Summer Day

Spend a Summer Day, Penn State’s main summer visit program, enables future students and their families to attend information sessions about a variety of topics, including the undergraduate admissions process, financial aid, academic colleges and departments, and more. Programs are available at all Penn State locations.

The College of Engineering offers general college information sessions and each academic unit gives a 40-minute presentation as a part of the full-day program for the Spend a Summer Day programs held at University Park each July/August.

Information and registration for the visits are available in May each year.


Individual Visits

If you want to come to University Park from September through April, we want to see you. The College of Engineering, in conjunction with the Penn State Admissions Office, schedules visits for future students and their families.


Scholars Day

The Schreyer Honors College admissions office presents Scholars Day, a comprehensive look at the Schreyer Honors College and Penn State, two times a year. Both events are very similar; prospective students likely would not need to attend both.

Spring Scholars Day

For high school juniors who are interested in exploring what Penn State and Schreyer Honors College have to offer. The Spring Scholars Day event includes a presentation about the Schreyer Honors College, campus tour, information fair, honors housing tour and reception so you can chat with Schreyer Honors College staff, faculty and current Scholars.

Fall Scholars Day

For high school seniors who are narrowing their school choices and who want more focused information about particular Penn State academic colleges and Schreyer. The Fall Scholars Day event includes a presentation about the Schreyer Honors College, campus tour, information fair, honors housing tour and reception so you can chat with Schreyer Honors College staff, faculty and current Scholars, and an opportunity to visit with an academic college to learn more about their programs.
