Course Planning

Certificate Course Timeline
Certificate students pursue programs at varying rates and with varying interests.  If you have not previously worked through a schedule with a staff member at Fels,  you may want to make an appointment in person or via phone with your advisor or Karen Kille, Associate Director of Student Affairs, to determine your course plan.

Executive MPA Course Timeline
The Master of Public Administration requires 8 core courses and 4 electives.  Most students complete the MPA executive format in the standard course sequence.

If you are planning to register for courses outside the recommended sequence, you'll need to request permission.  To do this complete the form on the following url: https://www.fels.upenn.edu/request-enroll-non-fels-course-offered-penn.
