100 Days until Graduation
As we approach the last 100 days to graduation, we've been thinking about the many unique experiences that Penn State and the surrounding Pittsburgh area has to offer, some small and some life-changing. We’ve started a Graduation Bucket List of the top 100 things that you should do before graduation this spring. Each issue of our FYI Newsletter, we will add items to the list.
Shopping Carts and Registration Dates
Students, do you know when you can schedule summer and/or fall courses?
Late February is a great time to ask yourself that question. Most students will schedule in late March to mid-April except for priority (early) registration for some (including veterans, athletes, honors students and students with disabilities).
As of February 21st, your summer and fall shopping carts were made available in LionPATH. You may be asking, “what’s so important about a shopping cart?” This means that now is the time to contact your assigned academic advisor to review and clear any holds you may have on your account and load your shopping cart to prepare for your registration date.
How to determine your registration date:
- Typically, students with more credits register first; registration dates are determined by adding your total credits earned to the credits on your current schedule.
- There are two ways to look up your date to register, in the Registration Timetable and in LionPATH, where you can look at your Student Center for "Enrollment Dates."
- You can begin enrolling in classes at 12:00 am EST on your assigned day to schedule.
For more information about shopping carts, enrollment dates or spring courses, contact your assigned academic adviser via email or during office hours.
Final Exam Conflict Period Reminder
As a reminder, Final exam week for the Spring 2024 semester is scheduled for Monday, April 29 through Friday, May 3. Students can view their individual final exam schedule in LionPath. On your main Home Base page, you'll see a section for Final Exams.
Students who have three or more finals on the same day are considered to have an overload conflict. If you have an overload conflict or a time conflict between more than one of your finals, you should discuss this with your instructors as soon as possible to determine which exam can be taken at an alternate time. A student with an overload conflict can choose to take all exams as scheduled if they feel it is more beneficial. The final exam conflict period ends on Sunday, March 3, therefore any discussions and arrangements made with your instructors needs to be resolved by that deadline.
Fall 2024 Schedule Available Now!
The schedule of courses has been released for the Fall 2024 semester. Please note that the Fall schedule may change up through the beginning of registration, with new courses or adjustments to the days and times a course is being offered.
The Registration Timetable is now available, and individual “Enrollment Appointments” will soon be posted on the home screen in a student’s LionPath, displaying the date where registering for the Fall semester can begin. Once you determine when you can register, be sure to meet with your advisor to discuss the scheduling of your classes and resolve any pending holds or “TO DO”s including the Fall 2024 Financial Responsibility Agreement in LionPath. An email will be sent out to students when enrollment appointments are set so that students can begin planning.
Please also continue to monitor the Registrar Website for all other important upcoming dates and deadlines for the current Spring semester and future semesters.
