Registration Instructions

Penn Engineering graduate students (CIS/MSE, MCIT, CGGT) 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 you can email Redian Furxhiu to release the hold.

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

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

Information on CIS course schedules can be found here.


Waitlist Information

  • Waitlist Courses – For students wanting to get in restricted or closed CIS classes they need to request permission for the course in path@penn and then go through the waitlist process.
  • When the CIS Waitlist (Waitlist) opens to students, at that time faculty will also be able to begin reviewing students requests.
