Domestic Guest Student Program

Spend an undergraduate semester studying in the Ivy League

The Domestic Guest Student Program offers undergraduate students at colleges around the US an opportunity to experience Penn’s academics and student life on our historic campus. If you are a full-time undergraduate student at a US college or university, you may apply to enroll full time at Penn for one semester as a complement to your current undergraduate program. The credits you earn at Penn may be applied towards the credit requirements for graduation at your home institution.

With its unrivaled academic resources, the University of Pennsylvania is an ideal place to explore an area of interest and learn from Penn scholars with expertise in your field. We invite you to experience Penn’s unique combination of campus and city life in the heart of Philadelphia. During your stay, you can select from the full catalog of courses offered by Penn’s School of Arts & Sciences, including seminars and upper-level courses with the permission of the instructor. Program participants are expected to enroll in a full-time course load of four courses per semester. Academics are the focus of the program, and students have access to a full range of academic supports.
