Graduate Program in Acoustics


Student Classification for Distance Education

  • Degree students are applicants who have applied and been admitted to graduate degree status by the Graduate School. Students in this category must satisfy all Graduate School and Acoustics Program requirements for the degree they are seeking.
  • NonDegree students are those who have applied to and been accepted by the Graduate School into this category. They are permitted to take courses but are not considered to be pursuing a degree at Penn State. Nondegree students with a 3.0 or higher grade point average in courses taken as a nondegree student may apply at any time for admission to degree student status and, if accepted, may transfer to the degree program a maximum of 15 credits earned as a nondegree student.
