At the Pennsylvania State University, Operations Research is an inter-college program and students are not directly admitted to the Operations Research Program. Interested students should apply for admission to one of the participating graduate programs. The appropriate department will review the candidate’s application for admission into that graduate program. After arrival at Penn State, the admitted student will then apply for a dual-title degree using the appropriate form provided in the appendix. This “Request for Dual-Title Degree in Operations Research” form must be filled out in consultation with the Graduate Coordinator in his/her graduate major and submitted to the Chair of the Operations Research Program. Students are encouraged to submit their application forms as early as possible, and not later than at least two semesters before their intended date of graduation.
