Summer Classes Next Steps

Summer Classes Next Steps

If you are a visiting (non-PSU) student, please make sure you follow the following steps to register for our classes:

1.  Submit the initial registration form

2. PSU will enter your information into our system, called LionPATH

3.  You will receive two emails from PSU, one asking you to create an account with a password, the other asking you to complete a registration activity guide.

4.  When you have completed all of the above, your account will be active and you will be able to register online for courses on February 5.  

The process listed above takes time to complete so it is strongly suggested you take care of this in early January so that you are ready to register at 12:01 a.m. on February 5.


Thank You for Registering For Summer Classes at Penn State Abington.

You have been assigned a PSU ID #. This number is now your primary identifier in the University system. Please use your PSU ID # next time you register for a course. Your ID will be on your registration confirmation that will arrive in the mail. Any registration questions please call 215-881-7338 or 215-881-7337.
