This summer, experience life as a Penn student. Join peers from across the US to access online Penn courses through open enrollment—and earn credits on a Penn transcript.
Penn Summer Sessions
One of the only programs at Penn that lets you enroll in classes without applying for admission, Penn Summer Sessions provides you with the ideal opportunity to take day or evening online courses that fit your life.
Penn Summer Abroad
Earn Penn credit as you experience culture in another country with Penn Summer Abroad. Travel with Penn faculty and other undergraduates with your accommodations and excursions planned for you. Enjoy the flexibility of a short-term commitment and make the most of your summer break.
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.
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.
