LEAP Registration

LEAP registration opens on Monday, March 14, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. and closes on May 6, 2022.

After May 6, new summer students will be able to sign up for LEAP during New Student Orientation as space allows.

Students accepted for fall start must contact Admissions to change their semester of enrollment to summer by May 4, 2022 to participate in LEAP.

STEP 1: Review the list of LEAP Prides

Tip: Not sure how to choose a pride? Visit the Selecting a LEAP Pride page. You can also email us at or call us at 814-863-4174 for guidance on selecting a pride. Keep in mind that some prides will fill very quickly and there may not be space in the pride that is your top choice. You should have a few back-up choices just in case your top choice is full. 

STEP 2: Accept your Offer of Admission
Tip: If your offer of admission is for the fall 2022 semester, you'll need to contact Admissions to change your start term to summer by May 4, 2022 before you can complete the next registration steps.

    STEP 3: Sign up for a LEAP Pride

    Tip: The earlier you sign up, the more likely it is there will be space in the pride you are interested in!

    • Visit and go to your New Student Orientation task list
    • Click the "Register for LEAP" link in your New Student Orientation task list
    • Select the LEAP pride you would like to participate in and submit the selection

    STEP 4: Complete the Pre-Registration Activity Guide for Summer 2022 in LionPATH
    Tip: We are unable to enroll you in the LEAP courses you have signed up for until you have completed the Pre-Registration Activity Guide for Summer 2022 in LionPATH. If you do not complete this step, we will get an error when we are registering you for your LEAP courses and we will not be able to finalize your course registration.

    • In the afternoon one business day after you complete step 3, login to LionPATH using your PSU credentials
    • Select Pre-Registration Activity Guide from your to-do list and complete the guide
      • You must complete the Pre-Registration Activity Guide by May 9, 2022

    Once you have completed all four steps, the LEAP classes associated with the LEAP pride you sign up for will be displayed in your LionPATH student schedule beginning on Wednesday, May 11, 2022.

    If you encounter difficulties, please contact the LEAP staff at or 814-863-4174.
