Advance Registration

Advance Registration: Fall 2022

Below you will see the procedure for the upcoming Fall 2022 advance registration period, which will be held April 18th-May 1st. Please be sure to use the new registration system, as Penn InTouch will no longer work. You can access the new registration system here:

https://srfs.upenn.edu/path-at-penn

You can find a quick reference guide on how to request courses during advance registration here.

These systems are new to all members of the University community, including staff/faculty, and there will be a learning curve for all. Please be patient as we all learn to navigate these various systems and work out bugs.

Advance Registration Procedure

All students will be cleared and permitted to register beginning Monday, April 18th. During the two-week Advance Registration period, all Undergraduate students are required to meet (either virtually or in person) with their faculty advisor. You will receive clear instructions from your faculty advisor on how to schedule an appointment. Please be prepared with an academic plan of courses you want to take next semester and beyond. For this semester, you can use the old eCPG/Worksheet from Penn InTouch when meeting with your faculty advisor, or you can use the new DegreeWorks tool in Path@Penn.

All students should have met with their advisor by Friday, April 29th.  If you do not meet with your faculty advisor by this date, you will remain on hold next semester.

Credit Increases

There will be no credit increases during advance registration (no exceptions). Students may only register for more than 5.5 cu’s AFTER grades from the current semester are available. You now must submit credit increase requests through Path Forms- please wait until all of your grades are reported before submitting your Max C.U. Increase Form. ‘

Permits

Permits are requested through CourseLeaf Path. You can see how to request a permit here.

Before you request a permit for a BE course you must do the following:

1) Email the instructor of the course to ask for permission.

2) If approved, forward that permission to Kacy (kacy@seas).

3) Ask for a permit through CourseLeaf Path.

4) The department will then approve the request in the system.

Please check your CourseLeaf Path for notification that your permit has been approved or denied. If approved, you must then register for the course, the permit does not automatically register you. Your permit will not be approved unless you get approval via email from the instructor.

*Please note that due to the new systems, course codes throughout the University have changed from 3 digit to 4 digit. SEAS added a 0 at the end of the 3 digit code (ex- BE 309 is now BE 3090). Other Schools have renumbered differently so please be mindful when registering. The BE Curriculum websites have been updated to reflect the new 4 digit course codes.

*Next year, BE 3060 is being offered in the spring, and BE 3010 is being offered in the fall. Please see the updated sample curriculum. This change may be permanent, so adjust your schedule accordingly.

Prerequisites

Please check your email for the current required pre and corequisites which lists each of your BE core classes and electives. These will be enforced, so all students must show their advisor that they have taken the required preliminary coursework. If you do not have the required prerequisites, you MUST have an approved petition or plan of action in place, in which case you should contact Kacy Dadura in the BE office.

Staff Advising

You can direct advising questions to Kacy (kacy@seas). Walk-in advising hours (Skirkanich 240) are Tuesday, 2-3pm and Thursday, 11am-12pm or by appointment. Accelerated Masters questions can be directed to Erin, ereavy@seas. Students may also contact an advisor in RAS.

Please see the BE Polices website for more information.
