Preregistration for Places in Introductory Courses

Click for section-specific topics and descriptions for:

ENGL 114b | ENGL 115b | ENGL 121b 

All students who wish to take an Introductory level English course (ENGL 114-130) this fall must preregister for a section. The online preregistration site will open at 9:00 am on Monday, December 2, 2013 and close promptly at 11:59 pm on Thursday, January 2, 2014. During that time, you may preregister at:

https://students.yale.edu/ocs-preference/select/select?id=8653.

After entering your Yale NetID and Password, you will be able to view a list of available sections of ENGL 114b-130b and rank your preferences. You will be able to return to the preregistration site and revise your choices until the close of the preregistration period.  Each student's submission will receive equal priority, as places will be assigned on the basis of a computerized random selection at the end of this period.  Assignment notices will be sent via email from the English department on or before Tuesday, January 7, 2014.

To secure your place in the assigned section or on the wait-list, you must attend ALL meetings of the class until the end of the second week of classes.  If you miss a class without informing the instructor beforehand, your place will immediately be filled from the wait-list.

If you missed the Online Preregistration or were not assigned a section, or if scheduling changes make it necessary for you to switch to a different section, you must attend the desired section for placement on the wait-list.  You must attend the class each time it meets in order to remain on the wait-list.

During shopping period, introductory course section availability will be posted and updated daily on the English department home page.

Questions about the placement process or about complications in particular cases can be directed to Erica Sayers or the DUS and Associate DUS in LC 107.
