The Penn State Graduate School website is best experienced in Firefox or Google Chrome. It is highly recommended that you use an alternative browser.

All application fees are nonrefundable. A $65 nonrefundable application fee is required for degree admission and postbaccalaureate (including graduate) credit certificate programs. A $30 nonrefundable application fee is required for nondegree admission.

An application will not be reviewed until the application fee is paid. Applicants should pay within the application as the final step after all other sections of the application are completed.  In unique situations where an applicant or another individual needs to pay for a previously submitted application, this can be done by credit card via the Graduate School Payment Portal, or by check/money order using the Application Fee Form.

Application fee waivers are not available from the Graduate School. If you are interested in requesting an application fee wavier, please contact the graduate program directly with your request.
