Students can schedule courses using LionPATH, Penn State's student system for registration, financial aid management, bill payment, personal information updates, and other tasks related to enrollment.
Your path for enrolling in a Penn State World Campus course will depend on whether you are already a Penn State student.
If you are already a Penn State student with an active Penn State Access Account, you can follow our instructions for current students to schedule a course.
If you plan to apply for a degree program, you can apply now, and you will receive more information when your application is processed.
If you are not a current Penn State student, and you do not plan to enroll in a degree program at this time, you will need to become a nondegree student before you can register for a course.
- If you would like to take an undergraduate level course (course numbers 1–499), you must complete an undergraduate nondegree enrollment form.
- If you would like to take a graduate level course (course numbers 500–699; 800–899), you must complete an application for nondegree enrollment to the Graduate School.
When your nondegree enrollment form or application to the Graduate School is processed, you will receive additional information, including a Penn State Access Account and instructions for enrolling in courses. To learn how you will enroll in courses once you have an Access Account, you can view our instructions for current students to schedule a course.
Note that students who are not enrolled in a degree program are considered “nondegree” and are not eligible for federal financial aid.
