General Information:

The Wharton School welcomes students to Wharton MBA-level elective courses.  These courses can add a valuable dimension to your education and your voices contribute to the Wharton classroom.  If you are interested in taking Wharton classes, you should take the following steps: 

Wharton Registration Process for Law Students - Fall 2016

  • Tuesday, August 30th:  First day of Classes at Wharton (Law Students must start attending classes on August 30th to be eligible for a spot in a Wharton class)
  • Tuesday, September 6th:  Deadline to submit Registration Authorization Requests for Non-MBA Student for enrollment in Q1 and Full Semester. All Law Students interested in taking Wharton Classes must drop off an“Authorization Request for non-Wharton Students”form (signed by the course instructor) by Tuesday, September 6, 2016 at 300 JMHH (Jon M. Huntsman Hall). Requests will not be processed without this form. Students need to be aware that approval does not guarantee a seat in the course; enrollment is based solely on space availability. The signed form merely allows a student to be enrolled IF space is available after Wharton students have finalized their course enrollments. Students will not know until or around the 6th whether there is a permanent spot for them in the course.  If there is a spot, Wharton will issue a PERMIT for the course, which you will find on Penn InTouch. This permit must be “claimed” within 24 hours.  Visit Penn InTouch to finalize your enrollment in the course.
  • Prior to the last day of Law School Add/Drop: Law Students enrolling in Wharton courses must review guidelines and fill out an Application for Law School Credit for a Non-Law Course here:
  • Additional Note Regarding Time Conflicts:  You need to resolve all time conflicts prior to submitting the Authorization form.  If there is a time conflict, Wharton will not be able to issue the permit and will not reserve your seat in the class pending resolution of the course conflict.

Course Units/Semester Hours

The University uses a “course unit” system, while the Law School uses a semester hour system. The translation is that 1 course unit (c.u.) = 3 Law School semester hours. If you are enrolled in a course outside of the Law School and it is showing as 1 cu, for example, the credits will convert to 3 Law School semester hours once your grade for the course posts. Some non-law courses are .5 CU and meet for only half of the semester.
