Academic Advising

All incoming M&T students will be assigned a faculty advisor in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and an advisor in the Wharton School. If M&T students have questions, it is often best to start at the M&T Office. In most cases, we will be able to assist you and if we cannot, we will be able to direct you to the appropriate advisor for assistance.

The Tutoring Center

The Tutoring Center offers Penn students a variety of free options to supplement their academic experience. Tutorials are offered in several formats including individual sessions at satellite Tutoring Center locations, private tutorials, student-led workshops, and review sessions. The Tutoring Center’s services can assist students in “easily getting an A as opposed to struggling for B,” as one student described the benefit. For more information on tutoring options, visit The Tutoring Center’s website.

Weingarten Learning Center

The Weingarten Learning Resources Center (WLRC) provides academic support services and programs for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students at the University of Pennsylvania through its two offices. Each year the WLRC provides students with a series of workshops to hone their academic skills in an Ivy League environment. In the past, M&T students have found the following workshops beneficial: the 10 Best Study Strategies, Managing Your Time at Penn, Staying on Top of Your Reading, and Preparing for Exams. These workshops are offered several times in the fall semester to accommodate as many schedules as possible. In the spring semester, additional workshops are available including: Planning Your New Semester, Staying on Top of Your Reading, Preparing for Midterms, Time Management After Spring Break, and Getting the Most Out of Reading Days. WLRC also offers workshop to help international students adjust to studying in the U.S. These workshops include Getting to Know a U.S. Classroom, Navigating Academic Resources at Penn, Academic Listening and Note Taking, Academic Speaking and Presentation, Academic Reading and Critical Thinking, and Academic Writing and Research Skills.

M&T Student Funding Application

The M&T Student Funding Application can be used to request funding from the M&T Program for 1) club activities or 2) conferences related to M&T classes (First year seminar, Integration lab). Prior to submitting an application, please read the guidelines on the application ensure your request meets the funding requirements. Funding is limited and not guaranteed and is granted at the discretion of the M&T Program.

M&T Academic Review

Students in the Program are expected to meet high academic standards. These expectations include maintaining a grade point standing of at least 3.0 in each semester, as well as a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above.  The academic review committee assesses the academic records of all students in the Program.  These reviews are conducted at the end of each semester and provide a method for monitoring student’s progress. A student who is unable to receive a 3.0 GPA for three consecutive semesters is dropped from the program. Student may have the option to remain as an uncoordinated dual degree student or single degree in either Engineering or Wharton, depending on each of the school’s expectations. Academic Probation from SEAS and Wharton is separate from Probation with M&T.

Student Disciplinary Status

In addition to academics, the M&T Program expects its students to adhere to the highest ethical and behavioral standards. Therefore, a violation of the University’s academic integrity or conduct standards may result in being dropped from the Program. A student who has been found responsible for a violation of any disciplinary standard (including the Code of Academic Integrity, the Code of Student Conduct, and the Sexual Misconduct Policy) and has received a reportable sanction (Suspension Not Imposed, Suspension, Delayed Diploma, Expulsion, and Withdrawal) will be subject to removal from the program without any process beyond that afforded during the adjudication of the violation and determination of sanctions.  There will be no appeal process for this type of Drop from the Program.
