Coronavirus Update

At this time, Penn Engineering Online Learning’s ability to review applications, process materials and release decisions has not been impacted. However, we are aware that prospective students may encounter delays & complications due to coronavirus. If you have concerns about submitting your materials by the deadline of May 1, please contact us at

  • English Proficiency: If you’re not able to get your official TOEFL scores to us by the Fall 2020 deadline of May 1st, we will accept unofficial TOEFL or IELTS scores taken within the last two years. Please note that offers of admission will be contingent upon receiving your Official TOEFL score. We must receive the official TOEFL score by July 15, 2020.
  • GRE: Since the GRE is optional, we will still need to receive the official scores by May 1st if you’d like them to be considered for Fall 2020.

If you are unable to submit your application by May 1, you are welcome to apply for Spring 2021. The Spring 2021 application cycle will open on June 1, 2020.
