Registering for classes at Penn State is a two-step process. Students first meet with their academic adviser to discuss course selection for the upcoming semester. Students then complete their registration by taking action on their semester tuition bill. Visit eLion to find the name of your academic adviser and use the Advising Preparation application to contact your academic adviser. Visit the Bursar's web site to learn more about tuition, billing, and payment options.
