Spring 2024 Registration Process:

Note: As a Bryn Mawr student, you must follow Bryn Mawr academic policies, and while enrolled in Penn courses, follow all the procedures defined in the University of Pennsylvania's Quaker Consortium Student Guide. Please read this page carefully.

First, submit a completed Quaker Consortium Registration Form for approval (form open on November 13, 2023, and will close on date TBD).  [No paper forms accepted – students may only submit the online form].  Please check for restrictions and special approval requirements in advance and confirm seat availability at https://courses.upenn.edu before submitting requests. Forms will be submitted to Penn by December 1st, 2023. 

  • View the LPS Course Guide here or view the Language Center offerings or search Penn's website by the department you are interested in and find courses on each department's website.  Use that undergraduate course information to complete the course request form. Per Penn's policy, Quaker Consortium students may only take courses not offered at their home institution.
  • View the Penn LPS Academic Calendar here.
  • Students cannot audit courses.  
  • In accordance with the Quaker Consortium Agreement, Bryn Mawr students are allowed to enroll in undergraduate courses offered by the College of Liberal and Professional Studies, the Language Center, or the College of Arts and Sciences (courses numbered 0001-4999). 
  • Bryn Mawr students do not have priority in Penn classes.  A seat in a Penn class is never guaranteed and students should always have a back up Tri-Co course in mind when planning their schedules.
  • Penn will begin processing registration requests starting December 1st. Students will start to receive emails about your course request status up through the start of the Spring semester.
  • If you are a Bryn Mawr student who has accommodations and you want to receive accommodations at Penn, and you are enrolled in a Penn course, you will be able to access Penn's Disability Services. You will receive instructions from both Bryn Mawr and Penn about this process once enrolled.
  • Classes at Penn begin on January 18, 2024.
  • The last day to add or drop a Penn course is January 31, 2024.
  • Penn Travel Funding Information
  • As always, the Bryn Mawr Honor Code is in effect.
  • Penn final exams will be May 6-14, 2024.
  • Seniors must confirm with their Penn course instructor in writing (email is fine) that they will be able to get your final course grade to the Bryn Mawr Registrar's Office by the senior grade deadline: noon on Monday, May 13, 2024, so that your graduation does not get held up.

Second, You will receive and email with instructions regarding your Path@Penn, PennKey, and other next steps. If you receive login credentials, the student is responsible for checking to see if they are registered for the course they requested at Penn. Receiving a PennKey setup code is does not guarantee you have a seat in your requested class.  

Third, If a course you requested requires special permission, do not contact the course instructor - that will slow down your ability to get in the class. For approved students, there will be an option to request permission within Path@Penn.

For any changes, adds/drops/withdrawals, Bryn Mawr students must contact the Bryn Mawr Registrar's office.
