Initial Registration Form for Non PSU Students

Non-Penn State students registering for the first time at Penn State, or who have attended Penn State but are not currently enrolled, must complete and submit this form.

To protect your privacy, we will contact you separately to obtain your social security number. Your registration isn't complete without that number.

Submitting this form starts the multi-step registration process which is described below:

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.

All Penn State students should register using LionPATH
