Degree Students

If you are interested in pursuing a degree:

Nondegree Students

If you are interested in taking coursers but do not wish to pursue a degree
at this time:

Students who register for the first time and take classes through resident instruction as undergraduate nondegree students must complete the nondegree Enrollment Data form available online or at the Registrar’s office in the Main Classroom Building.

Enrollment as a nondegree student does not imply admission to the University. The student must make formal application to the Admissions Office in the Main Classroom Building to be considered for admission as an undergraduate degree candidate.

There are two categories of undergraduate nondegree enrollment:

  1. Regular
    There are no special restrictions to the nondegree regular status; advising is not required. All nondegree students register on a space available basis.
  2. Conditional
    Students previously dropped from degree status because of poor scholarship at Penn State or any other college or university may enroll only in a nondegree conditional status. Restrictions are applied to students registering in a nondegree conditional status:
    • Limited to 12 credits per semester.
    • Limited to 40 credits overall while in this status.
    • Must obtain academic advice before registering.
