Lion Path Assigns Major Preferences Requirement For Students:
Beginning with Spring Season,- 2023 New Course Registration, Penn State Pre-Major Undergraduate students will now be required to complete the new Major Preferences Student Activity Guide (MPSAG) to enroll in courses in Lion Path each semester.
The purpose of the MPSAG is to record pre-major students’ preferred major(s) each semester, data which will help academic departments gauge interest in their degree programs and help with possible course forecasting, which determines the demand for and resources needed for future course enrollment).
The Spring 2023 MPSAG will be rolled out to pre-major undergraduate students as a Lion Path “To-Do List” task in mid-September, while the Pre-Registration Activity Guide is assigned in Lion Path. As with the Pre-Registration Activity Guide, students will receive an email notification that a new task (completing their Major Preferences Student Activity Guide or MPSAG) has been assigned and needs to be completed before enrolling in classes.
The MPSAG will be an additional required pre-registration activity alongside the Pre-Registration Activity Guide for all future semesters. Though students and academic advisers can update major preferences at any time through the degree planning and progress navigation in Lion Path, the only way for a student to clear their registration hold will be to complete the MPSAG. Any student in pre-major status must complete the MPSAG to register for classes when the task is assigned to them in Lion Path.
The launch of the MPSAG marks the final phase of the Major Preferences tool implementation in Lion Path. In collaboration with academic advising leadership, the Lion Paths Development and Maintenance Organization (LDMO) introduced the Major Preferences tool last spring to help students and advisers track a student’s majors of interest over time.

Here are some key points for pre-major, undergraduate students:
A Help Doc is available on the Student Help page of the Lion Path Support site, in the Getting Started with Lion Path section (Completing the Major Preferences Activity Guide).
If a student encounters an issue when completing the MPSAG, it is recommended the student clear their browser and cache history from all times, close all browser windows, and then try again.
Depending on timing, the MPSAG may still appear on a student’s Do List even if they have recently declared a major. Such students must still complete the MPSAG to clear the hold.
Questions regarding this update or any issues should be submitted through a service request via the Lion Path Support Site.
Completing the Major Preferences Activity Guide
Prior to each semester’s enrollment as an undergraduate student in a pre-major, you will receive an email notification that a new task, Major Preferences Activity Guide, has been assigned to your Do List. The guide contains the View My Major Preferences tool, which collects information about your current major(s) of interest. Complete the activity guide to remove the task from your Do List.
Navigating to the Major Preferences Activity Guide:
The Major Preferences Activity Guide can be accessed using the direct link in the body of the email or through Lion Path.
- To access the activity guide, click on the number to the left of the To-Do List.
- Select the desired row on the To-Do List table to complete an item.
How to submit a change of major request
If you want to change from one college to another or from one major to another, or from the Division of Undergraduate Studies to a college, you can do so by following the steps below.
