Students request courses for the upcoming semester during the Advance Registration period. During Advance Registration, students submit their preferred courses, as well as alternative courses, using Path@Penn, the online registration system. Students can submit their course requests at any time during this period. All course requests are processed at the conclusion of the Advance Registration period, regardless of when the request was submitted. Although there is no advantage to registering early and no guarantee that students will be enrolled in all their requested courses, it is very important to take part in Advance Registration. Students who do not advance register may find themselves closed out of the courses they wish to take.
