Registration Instructions

Dear CIS/MSE Students:

All SEAS grad students have been placed on a registration "hold." Before you can register, you should have your advisor's approval to have the hold removed. 

Please use the template below to review your proposed enrollment with your advisor (by email is fine and preferred); your advisor may release the hold or can email Mike Felker to release the hold.

Once the hold is released you can signup for classes by accessing Penn Portal.

iIf you run into a problem re: the hold or course enrollment, let Mike know.

Due to Penn administrative constraints, submatriculant students need to contact Mike to get a 'permit' to register for grad courses.

Information on CIS course schedules can be found here.
