If you are an undergraduate from another institution, a Penn employee, or a working professional or individual who is not currently enrolled at or employed by Penn, you can enroll in Penn Summer Sessions as a visiting student. Open enrollment means that Penn Summer Sessions do not require an official application; however, you will need to use our online application system to submit the necessary contact information and a non-refundable fee of $50 to enroll. First, create a new account in the online application system; once you have verified the account, you can complete the enrollment process.
