If you are not currently enrolled in a program at Penn, you can enroll in Penn Summer Sessions as a visiting student. Open enrollment means that 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. Visit the Penn Summer Sessions Enrollment page for a video walkthrough of visiting student enrollment.
