Penn's Coronavirus COVID-19 Page
As of March 12, 2020, Penn Summer Sessions are scheduled to run as planned. The situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is fluid and being monitored closely. Please check back periodically for updates. Should there be any changes to the policy that impacts our decision to hold courses this summer, we are committed to providing timely updates via email. Should any of these programs be cancelled, students will receive a full refund of program fees at that time.

Our campus task force is monitoring the situation daily and making active decisions as we receive new information. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our campus community. You can stay updated with all developments on Penn’s special coronavirus webpage.

Transferring credits

We encourage you to consult with your home institution regarding transfer credit policies prior to enrolling in courses through Penn Summer. In many cases, the transfer credit evaluation process will require a review of the course syllabus. When available, Penn Summer will post syllabi on the website under the course description. After completing course work at Penn and being awarded a grade, you can request a transcript through the University Registrar's Office to submit to your home institution for final evaluation.

Getting started

Once you have received confirmation of your enrollment in a Penn Summer program, learn how to get started with your studies. As a visiting student, you will be assigned an advisor from the Penn Summer team who assist with academic needs. Please contact our office at (215) 898-7326 to schedule an advising appointment.
