Once you accept your offer of admission and pay your enrollment fees, processing will begin on your I-20 through the Office of Global Programs at the University Park campus. Global Programs serves as the I-20 processing center for international students admitted to all Penn State locations. Watch your email for communication from the Office of Global Programs and visit the Before You Arrive page for additional information including Financial Guarantee Requirements page.
In addition to the required health and immunizations information described on this site, international students are also required to demonstrate that they have health insurance coverage. Additional information is available through on the Insurance Mandate page of the pre-arrival advising website.

Starting the last week of May you will receive the first of a series of emails that continue through August. Each email provides specific information related to topics such as your arrival, orientation and enrollment at Penn State Altoona.
