Register for Academic Credit
To gain access to Penn State faculty and earn academic credit, you need to register for classes. Most of the classes associated with our open educational resources are available online. Tuition paid by students is used to pay the salaries of the faculty and staff members who create, maintain, and update these resources.
On-campus students: If you are already a registered student at one of Penn State's campus locations, search the Schedule of Courses to discover whether the "Web" class you want is available at your campus. Most on-campus students will register for classes through eLion.
Off-campus students: Penn State's World Campus is the delivery unit for online degree and certificate programs for students not registered at another Penn State campus. Search the World Campus Course Catalog to find the online course you want. Visit the World Campus' Getting Started page for information about how to apply and register for class.
