Academic Services - Course Registration 

Second and third-year students advance register for fall and spring courses, seminars, clinics, externships, and co-curricular activities during advance registration.  LLMs also request courses and seminars during advance registration each term - however, LLMs should not request clinics and externships; the Clinic will conduct interviews to fill available seats (dates to be announced). First-year students advance register for spring courses only.  Course requests are managed through Penn InTouch.

Fall registration takes place during the summer, in late June/July.  Spring registration is in late October. You will be notified by the Registrar’s Office when your final schedule is available on Penn InTouch. While reviewing your courses we also ask that you please update your address information (permanent and or local address) on Penn InTouch.

During the advance registration period your course requests are being collected. Courses are not actually scheduled until the request period is over. Your chance of being placed in a course is not affected by when you enter your requests.  Add/drop takes place during the first two weeks of class in both the fall and spring semesters.
