Undergraduate Admissions

We are an Ivy League school that offers two undergraduate degrees in Bioengineering, the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) and the Bachelor of Applied Science in Biomedical Science (BAS). Both degrees are flexible and prepare students for many career paths, from research to medicine to industry. Students do not have to know which degree they will choose when they are applying, and can even switch from one program to the other after being admitted.

To apply:

Visit the University of Pennsylvania Undergraduate Admissions website. All undergraduate admissions to programs at Penn are done via this central office. This site provides very helpful information on application procedures and forms, financial aid, visiting the University, and other useful information about applying to Penn.
