More than 270 years later, our students continue to use the new discoveries, theories, and knowledge produced every day on our campus to solve problems in the world. As an office, we serve this mission by seeking students who care deeply about the world they will inherit and who aspire to use their education to effect positive change.

It is with great purpose that we approach the charge of helping students find the right college -- a sentiment we know you share. Working closely with you, our goal is to identify those students most likely to thrive in and contribute to the Penn community. 

We aim to be a helpful presence in your communities throughout the year and look forward to a strong partnership and shared engagement.

Application Advice Videos 

Welcome to the first installment of our application advice videos where we have distilled important themes from our on-campus information session into a series of animated videos. These videos aim to provide useful tips and practical advice for students completing their college applications.

We hope this will be a helpful teaching and advising tool for your work with students, families, and other educators. Please note that subtitles are provided in both Spanish and English.
