Average SAT scores at Penn State?

I want to apply to Penn State but I'm not sure if my SAT score is good enough. What is their average SAT score?

12 days ago

Penn State University generally has competitive SAT scores. For the incoming class in 2024, the middle 50% SAT score range for admitted students was between 1160 and 1360. This means that 25% of admitted students scored below 1160, and another 25% scored above 1360.

Remember, these are approximate figures and vary somewhat from year to year, so it's always a good idea to check Penn State's official admissions website for the most updated figures. Additionally, having a score in or above this range does not guarantee admission, as they consider other factors such as GPA, course rigor, extracurricular activities, and essays in addition to test scores.

But keep in mind, especially with the SAT, higher scores are likely to improve your chances. If you're not satisfied with your current score, it's always worth considering re-taking the test to see if you can improve.
