Update on Summer and Fall Registration

Dear Students and Faculty,

We are sending some important updates regarding summer and fall registration.

Summer 2020 classes will start on Tuesday, May 19 as scheduled. Summer classes in the School of Nursing will be offered remotely to take preventive measures related to the coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and safety of our campus community are of utmost importance. Students are not required or expected to reside in the Philadelphia area for the summer term. We anticipate that fall semester classes will be offered in residence.

The date for Summer and Fall 2020 registration has been postponed until April 14 at 7am.

As always, summer registration is live – when you request the course, you are enrolled, unless it requires a permit.

Fall registration is Advance Registration, where you submit your requests in order of priority. Registration will not be finalized until after the system closes at midnight on April 24. You may submit your requests at any time between April 14-24. For more information on Advance Registration, please refer to the documentation on our Courses and Registration page.

All Nursing students must request advisor sign off before they are able to register; the hold must be removed from each semester – summer and fall – if students are registering for both semesters.

Students and Faculty are encouraged to check the COVID-19 information and resources page on the School of Nursing website to stay informed. We have included FAQs on advising, registration, policies regarding P/F, as well as university resources available while we work and study remotely on the following page:


As a reminder, the Office of Academic Affairs is working remotely. We ask that you e-mail all advising questions to advisor@nursing.upenn.edu and registration questions to registration@nursing.upenn.edu.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate this unprecedented time. We remain committed to delivering an outstanding academic experience for you and will continue to provide any updates as they occur.
