IST Future Students Apply


Apply to the College of Information Sciences and Technology at Penn State by following these simple steps.

To apply to Penn State, please use the online application. You will be asked to create an account that you can access using your User ID and password.

We recommend that you apply to the IST program at Penn State between September 1 and November 30 of your senior year in high school. Make sure to also send in your SAT/ACT scores and high school transcript by November 30 as admission to Penn State, especially the University Park campus, becomes more competitive after that date.

Penn State prefers that you apply online but you also can request a paper application by clicking on the link below and choosing "Order Print Materials."
