The Registrar: Ways to Enroll

Office of the University Registrar AR1
112 Shields Building

The Office of the University Registrar has University-wide responsibility for student academic records and related processes, including; registration, academic transcripts, confidentiality of student records, grade reporting, graduation and diplomas, enrollment verification, scheduling of classrooms and final exams, and degree audits. Our goal is to provide you with accurate and complete information in a quick and efficient manner.


Academic Renewal

Academic renewal provides an opportunity for former Penn State students having a 2.0 or below GPA to resume their academic career after a four year minimum break in coursework without being penalized by their past academic record.

Non-degree student

Any person having received a high school diploma or its equivalency be permitted to register, on a space available basis, as a non-degree regular student. Non-degree students fall into either Nondegree-Regular or NonDegree-Conditional categories. For additional information please go to the Office of the University Registrar website.


Re-enrollment allows a former degree candidate to resume degree candidacy. The Office of the University Registrar offers a detailed way to re-enroll in degrees, graduation, and an exception for adult learners.

Continuing Education

Continuing Education at University Park focuses on supporting the part-time adult learner, offering evening and weekend credit courses toward certificates, associate degrees, and select baccalaureate degree programs at our State College and Lewistown locations. 

World Campus

Penn State World Campus is “Penn State | Online.” The World Campus was created for adult learners who may need a more flexible way to access a Penn State education. The mission is to deliver Penn State degrees, certificates, and courses in convenient distance learning formats, and our organizational structure enables us to do just that. You can take a combination of in-class, online and weekend courses to fulfill your degree requirements.

Completing Your Course Registration

The Penn State registration process is not complete until tuition and fees are paid. After you schedule your courses, the Bursar’s Office will send an e-mail message to your official University e-mail account announcing that the eBill is available. Regardless of the amount due (even if there is no amount due), action is required to complete the registration process. There is a $50 late registration fee. For detailed information concerning your tuition bill, contact the Bursar’s Office. Information concerning how to complete your registration can be found on the Office of the University Registrar website
