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. The program is designed to complement your current undergraduate program, and earn credits that you will use towards graduation at your home institution.

Penn’s unrivaled academic resources make the University an ideal place to explore an area of interest and work with a faculty member 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 may enroll in the full range of courses offered by Penn’s School of Arts & Sciences, including seminars and upper-level courses with the permission of the instructor. Program participants will be expected to enroll in a full-time course load of four courses a semester. The focus on the program is an academic experience, and students will have access to a full complement of academic supports.
