but I don't understand the bolded bit

Penn State has multiple campuses around the state. Main campus is the "real" school, the rest are smaller, often more commuter oriented for kids who don't want to go away, or couldn't get into main campus and hope they can transfer after a year.

The university also has a number of separate colleges under it's roof (nursing, communications), that are under the PSU umbrella, but issue the diploma. They take a smaller percent of incoming freshman directly into the separate colleges, and those who are not quite up to snuff are either rejected outright, or offered acceptance in the liberal arts program, and then transfer into the college in a year or two. Application has to be made to the separate colleges directly.

Long story short, she'll still have to take all her liberal arts requirements to meet graduation standards, but instead of getting a BA in liberal arts, or hoping to make the communications cut later, she's already in.
