Please note that the Real Estate Department does not maintain a waitlist for oversubscribed courses. Teaching faculty are encouraged to keep their own list for high demand courses. Registration beyond the maximum set for a course is solely at the discretion of the professor teaching the course.
If you trying to register for REAL/FNCE 209 (Real Estate Investments) and find it difficult to register under either section, you should make sure to attend the first few lectures. The instructor will not consider registration requests from students who have missed more than one lecture during the first two weeks. Speak to the professor directly about your registration difficulties.
For Real Estate Development, there is one section (crosslisted three ways) that is offered in the Spring and the other in the Fall of the year: REAL 821/ REAL 321/ARCH 768-401 and REAL 821/REAL 321/ARCH 768-402. Wharton MBA Students who desire to enroll in (REAL 821) must do so by requesting the course through the MBA Course Match System. REAL/FNCE 721 is the prerequisite and is STRICTLY enforced for this class unless it is under-subscribed.The Graduate section for Penn Design students is ARCH 768-401 or 402. Penn Design Students may register for these sections on Penn In Touch or see their School Registrar.
The undergraduate section for the Spring semester Real Estate Development course is REAL 321-401 taught by Asuka Nakahara. Seniors who are concentrators in Real Estate are given first preference. The first five persons that request the course during Advanced Registration on Penn in Touch and have taken the pre requisite (Real Estate Investments REAL/FNCE 209) will gain entry. Undergraduates will be informed of their status on the waitlist and or if they have been successfully admitted a few days after the finalized student schedulers are available on Penn in Touch.
MBA and Non-MBA Student Registration
The Real Estate Department does not grant permits to MBA’s if the course in question is in the MBA Course Match System. If a seat becomes available in an oversubscribed course post-Course Match, the MBA Program Office will first offer the seat to a MBA student on their waitlist.
The Wharton MBA Program Office conducts registration for non-MBA students (who are full-time Penn students) after the MBA Course Match System has closed. At that time non-MBA students can “request” any available seats. Please visit the MBA Program Office in 300 JMHH for more information or see the following link:
