Registration Instructions

Dear CIS/MSE,  MCIT & CIS/PhD Graduate Students,

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

Please use the registration/approval info below as a template 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; if you run into a problem let Mike know.

Information on CIS course schedules can be found here. To check enrollment, change course registration, sign up for classes, etc., access the Penn Portal.
