New PSU Applicants
NOTE: New PSU Applicants may be eligible for the Abington Art Scholarship »
A New PSU Applicant may be an incoming first-year student, a transfer student from a non-PSU campus, or a non-degree OR provisional student applying for degree status. Applicants work with Abington’s Office of Admissions » to complete the Admissions process.
New Applicants are not required to submit a portfolio until having completed Foundation Studios ART 110S and ART 111. However, transfer students who receive credit for ART 110S and ART 111 and who have achieved Entrance-to-Major requirements may immediately submit a portfolio… see instructions below.
Current PSU Students
If applying to the Art major, a Current PSU Student may be completing:
- Pre-major (ABHSS) progress toward Major Requirements for Art
- A Change of Major (switching to Art from another Penn State Abington major)
- A Change of Major and Change of Campus (from another PSU major and location)
- Re-enrollment (as a former PSU student enrolling in Art for the first time)
- A Concurrent Degree (a double major with Art as one of the programs)
Current PSU Students submit a portfolio after achieving Entrance-to-Major requirements… see instructions below
The Portfolio Process
Unlike many art programs, the portfolio application process to our Art Program is FREE.
When submitting a portfolio, verify that you meet other Entrance-to-Major requirements: a 2.0 minimum CGPA and a minimum of 27.1 credits earned.
Complete the submission process as per the following form:

Portfolio submission deadline: Consult with your academic advisor! Portfolios are accepted on a rolling basis, but are usually submitted at the end of the semester in which the student expects to conclude Foundation Studio requirements. This permits enrollment in major courses the following semester.
