WHARTON CLASS REGISTRATION INFORMATION FOR NON-WHARTON STUDENTS
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:
- Review the 2016-17 Wharton MBA Academic Calendar.
- Review course descriptions and prerequisites using the MBA Resource Guide
Wharton Registration Process for Law Students - Spring 2017
- Monday, January 9th: First day of Classes at Wharton (it is recommended that Law Students start attending classes on January 9th to ensure that they do not fall behind if you are able to register for the class). You may also begin submitting your Authorization Request for non-Wharton Students.
- Tuesday, January 17th: 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, January 17, 2017 at 300 JMHH (Jon M. Huntsman Hall). You may begin submitting requests on January 9th. Requests will not be processed without the form signed by the course instruction. 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.
- Thursday, January 19th: Students should attempt to register for the course on Penn In Touch at **2pm on January 19, 2017.** If Wharton was able to register you, you will be able to enroll. This permit must be “claimed” within 24 hours.
- 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: https://jfe.qualtrics.com/form/SV_e4CkUPtAtD0RWDP
Additional Note Regarding Time Conflict: 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.
- Wharton may need to correspond with you regarding your registration status. Make sure to legibly write your email address and Penn ID on the Non-MBA Registration forms.

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.
