MOL Course Registration and Materials

Summary of course materials, registration and MOL courses.

Course Registration

The MOL office will register you for all of your core courses throughout the program.

To ensure that you are eligible for enrollment each semester, you must complete the Financial Responsibility Agreement (FRA) in LionPath.  This can typically be found in your student account in February/March for the fall semesters, and September/October for the spring semesters.  Until you complete the FRA, you will not be permitted to enroll in courses.

Please also check your student account periodically for holds.  These are placed on students' accounts by a department when they have failed to meet a university requirement or owe money.  If you have a hold on your account, you will not be permitted to register for courses.

Course Materials

Course Materials for MOL Core Courses vary by faculty members.  Some will have required textbooks; others will not have any textbook requirement.  Often times faculty create course packets which are made available through the local bookstores.   The course packets are typically available a few days before classes begin. 

Using the course list below you can search the Penn State Bookstore's website for the textbooks that are currently assigned to your courses. Keep in mind that faculty members can order textbooks for their courses throughout the summer, so be sure to check back over  for the most up-to-date information.  Upon your arrival on campus, you can visit the Penn State Bookstore for a comprehensive list of textbooks and course materials required. 

Additionally, for those students who prefer eBooks, is a free textbook app that allows students to purchase either full textbooks or individual chapters for their courses. Features of this platform include a free chapter of each textbook, content that never expires, and full annotation abilities that sync between devices.
