Be sure to make an appointment with your assigned adviser. You can locate your adviser information under My Advisers in your LionPATH Student Center.
Complete your Pre-Registration Activity Guide for spring 2021.
For every semester a student intends to register for courses at Penn State, including summer, you need to complete the Pre-registration Activity Guide located under your to-do list on the top of your LionPATH Student Center. You can do this by selecting "Complete Task," under the to-do list. For helpful instructions, visit the LionPATH tutorials page.
Register for classes on your registration date.
If you have noholds on your account (which you should check ahead of time), you will be able to add your classes on your registration date. By adding your classes on your registration date, you are all set for a successful spring 2021 semester! Need help registering for classes, check out this tutorial.
Flexible Instructional Modes
For the spring 2021 semester, courses will be coded with the same Covid Instructional Modes as implemented for the fall semester. You can search for classes by Mode of Instruction using Class Search or Schedule Builder.
The multi-campus registration policy permits a student to enroll in courses offered at a campus that is not their assigned campus. However, there is an important restriction to this policy. Students are not eligible to enroll in a course that is offered at a different campus until one week prior to the start of the semester. We expect course offerings to be limited by this time and encourage students to work with their academic adviser to make a plan and a backup plan in the event that a course they want to schedule at another campus is full. Penn State's Registrar website offers detailed information regarding multi-campus registration.
Note: Prerequisites, course controls, and limits may be enforced.
