Q: When does the accelerated BSB program start?

A: We are currently recruiting for fall 2015.

Q: How long are the classes?

A: Two classes per Saturday, 8:30 am to noon, and 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm during a seven-week cycle. Two terms per semester are offered so students are considered full-time. Students have time off throughout the year for holidays and vacations.

Q: How much does it cost?

A: Current cost is approximately $7,000 per semester. Many employers have reimbursement programs that help subsidize the cost of the program. Additionally, scholarships, grants, and loans are available to students who qualify.

Q: How do I enroll?

A: There is an admissions process that involves an application and review of prior transcripts. Visit our admissions page and follow instructions regarding application.

Q: How long does it take to enroll?

A: Getting prior colleges to forward your transcripts can take two weeks or two months, depending upon the college and when you request, so requesting transcripts as soon as possible is important. Once we have your online application and your transcripts, a decision is made and communicated to you within several weeks. We prefer students to enroll by July 1 to secure a place in the fall class.

If you have questions about the program or the admissions process, please contact Solange Israel-Mintz, Adult Student Enrollment Coordinator, at 610-396-6222 or e-mail Solange (BK-AdultStudent@psu.edu).
