    Congrats I am sure you are super excited. I am going to apply for fall 2014. I am currently in school and figured I will finish this degree and then go to school for what I have always thought of going for..lol... Best wishes !!

    mmw90, May I ask if you already have your pre req's done and do you know how many people they accept?

    I do, but my situation is a tad bit more complicated. I am a transfer student, who has transferred directly into the nursing program. So while they told me all my credits were accepted, they failed to let me know if those credits will be used towards my degree or not. I'm thinking I will learn this info at my advising session. But yes I have completed pre-reqs just not at PSU Altoona.

    As to how many they accept I believe it is 50 per semester, as it was explained to me by a admissions rep. The order of admission is as follows: True Freshmen, PSU Guaranteed admits, former/current PSU students, and then transfers.

    mmw90, thank you so much. I would be a transfer student also. Did anyone mention to you what gpa is needed to get in? I have a friend that also applied for fall 2013; Do you know when everyone should know by if they have been accepted. She hasn't heard anything yet.

    Well, my friend checked her status and apparently her college never sent the transcript to psu. So, I guess that is why she never heard anything. But I am still curious to know if they told you when everyone would hear by for when I apply this fall for the fall of 2014. Sorry for all the questions... lol

    It should be on the bursars webpage Office of the Bursar. Last I checked I thought it was around 9 grand a semester but I could be wrong.

    You should hear back anywhere between february-March..I was told even as late as end of March. I got my acceptance notification on the mypennstate portal on February 18th this year.
