Registration Instructions

All Penn Engineering graduate 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 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.

Due to Penn administrative constraints, sub-matriculation students need to contact Redian to get a ‘permit’ to register for graduate courses.

Information on CIS course schedules can be found here.
