Multiple Campus Registration

Every Penn State student is assigned a home campus where he/she must register. Students and academic advisers can see a student's campus in LionPATH by selecting the "Academic Background" link under "Academics."

Multiple-campus registration is a procedure for students who want to enroll in courses at his/her assigned home campus and at another Penn State campus (or campuses) in the same semester or session (policy C-2). Students should first register for courses offered by their home campus. In order to register for courses at any other campus, permission is required from the non-home campus. When planning a multiple campus registration, students should consult with their adviser.

Please note: If a student plans to schedule the majority of his/her credits at a campus other than his/her assigned home campus, the student must request a temporary change of campus.

Process if the other campus (including World Campus) is not University Park:

  1. Register for a course or courses at your assigned home campus.
  2. In the LionPATH Search for Classes, identify a course or courses at the other campus you would like to attend.
  3. Contact the Registrar's office at the other campus for permission to add the course(s). For World Campus courses, call (814) 863-5256.

Process if the other campus is University Park:

  1. Register for a course or courses at your assigned home campus.
  2. Contact the University Park department that offers each course that you want to obtain permission to be enrolled in the course.
  3. If permission is granted, the department will forward the request to the Registrar's office to add the course to your schedule.
