Non-Engineering Student Course Registration Policy

Non-Engineering Students may request to take one (1) SEAS graduate level course, (500 and above,) based on course registration availability and/or classroom size. NO additional registration beyond 1 course unit will be permitted unless the student is admitted to a graduate program in Engineering (Master’s or PhD). Only for students in a graduate degree program outside of Engineering who are using these courses as part of their curriculum requirements, may request to take more than 1 CU with departmental approval.


Students must complete the Non-Engineering Graduate form, with signature, and bring it to 109 Towne Building (Research and Academic Services Office) or email the attachment as a pdf file to graddean@seas.upenn.edu for processing. This form must have an ink signature from the instructor or email approval sent along with the form. Courses from the CIS department require waitlist approval prior to completing the Non-Engineering Graduate form. Course permits cannot be granted through a department and failure to follow this procedure can result in the school dropping your registration if it is not compliant with the policy. Once reviewed, you will receive an email from RAS with the outcome of your request.


Non-engineering students are not permitted to enroll in CIT On-line Classes.
