In a cooperative program with the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) the pre-engineering student undertakes a three-year curriculum in liberal studies and natural sciences (physics, mathematics, chemistry, computer science, geology) at SRU.
Upon satisfactory completion of the first three years and recommendation, the students will enter PSU and complete the engineering major course requirements, as specified. Successful completion of these programs will lead to an appropriate baccalaureate degree from each institution.
A student who meet the stipulated criteria and is recommended for transfer by SRUs Department of Physics will be able to enter one of the following areas of study:

Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
Admission Policies & Procedures of the dual-degree Program with Penn-State
Students are advised by Slippery Rock University that some government-provided financial aid may not be available for a fifth year of study because engineering is considered, by financial-aid regulations, to be a four-year program.
No work experience is required.
"The Academic Excellence Scholarship can provide up to a 50 % reduction in tuition per semester. These scholarships will be renewed if the student maintains superior academic performance during each semester of their 3-year Bachelor programme.
