What Students Are Saying

3.22 Average Rating
Penn State Abington has no on-campus dormitories, but can assist the non-local student to find housing in the area. Likewise, because it is a good place to start, the earlier you can apply, the better. The decision as to whether to transfer to University Park, or another campus can always be made at a later time, especially after getting a good start in the basics needed for any and all degrees. Being a Land Grant School, the tuition is much less than practically any other College or University in the Commonwealth, so applications come in early and many people apply. They do look at the entire individual, so just because your SAT scores aren't the best doesn't necessarily mean that you don't have a shot at acceptance. Likewise, the same goes for scholarship and grant applications and programs.
