Master's Degree: Getting Started

You will receive information over the summer from the School of Engineering and Applied Science about the school's plan for orientation. In the meantime, please review the Bioengineering Department's orientation page. It will be helpful to review the program's requirements and also look at the registrar's web page to learn what courses are being offered in the fall. You can also access a list of suggested graduate courses broken down by discipline.

Please complete the Master's Course Planning Guide (CPG) worksheet over the summer so the advisor hold can be removed from you registration prior to the beginning of the fall semester. Once your course selection is approved, the advisor hold will be removed and you will be able to register through Penn InTouch.
