Designing your plan of study and related information:
Regular drop: after the deadline, you will need to pay tuition penalty which increases quickly
Late drop: after the deadline, you will not be able to late drop after the deadline
To resume back to the study:
If you skip one or more Fall or Spring semesters, you will need to submit a resume of study at the following site (good to do it at least one month before the start of the new semester)
After you have submitted your resume studies application, you will need to watch your email over the next day or so for an offer to accept your re-admission. Following that you should have notification that you can go into LionPATH and enroll. You will first need to complete a pre-registration activity guide that will be in your LionPATH Student Center.
To drop a course:
Use LionPATH to drop/late drop by the Late Drop day, however, if you are dropping the only course, then you have to complete the withdrawal form available at: http://www.registrar.psu.edu/student_forms/withdrawal_form.cfm and submit it to the Grad School.
To continue taking Applied Statistics courses after graduation:
If one wants to take more courses after graduation, one can do so by applying (no fee) for a "Change of major" to non-degree at the following site:
To file for "Intent to graduate":
The University Registrar site has instructions for students wishing to apply for graduation. One should choose "Graduation" from the menu on the left, then choose "Setting Your Intent to Graduate".
