Student Handbook: Student Policies and Procedures Index

Welcome

Beginning with the 2021 Fall semester, the Weitzman Office of Student Services has transitioned away from a PDF Student Handbook. Instead, the information that was formerly in the Student Handbook has been re-formatted as a series of links to all relevant policies and procedures at Weitzman and at Penn. We are excited to share this new format, which complies with ADA web standards and provides ease of use for students seeking information. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the Weitzman Office of Student Services, at des-studentservices@design.upenn.edu or 110 Meyerson Hall.

Sincerely,
Emily McCully, Director of Student Services
Dana McElroy, Registrar
Kali Meeks, Associate Director of Professional Development and Leadership
Jenilyn Reyes, Associate Registrar

Course, Program, and Degree Information

  • Weitzman Degree Programs
  • Dual-Degrees at Weitzman
  • Weitzman Certificate Programs
  • Weitzman Elective Course Descriptions
  • University of Pennsylvania Catalog: The University's annual publication of degree programs, certificate offerings, academic requirements, course grids, and other information.

    • FNAR: Fine Arts

University Policies and Procedures

Students, faculty and staff are referred to the current edition of The PennBook for University policies and procedures that govern all University students, not just those at Weitzman. Below are quick links to some of the University policies that are of particular relevance to Weitzman students:
