After entering your Yale NetID and Password, you will be able to view a list of available sections of the courses and rank your preferences. You may return to the preregistration sites and revise your choices before 7:30 p.m. on Monday, August 28. 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 by 9:00 a.m. on August 29.
To secure your place in the assigned section or on the waiting list, you must attend ALL meetings of the class through the end of the second week of classes.
If you miss preregistration period, 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 and ask to be added to the waiting list. You must attend the class each time it meets in order to remain on the waiting 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, Jane Bordiere, Jessica Brantley (DUS), or Joseph North (Associate DUS) in LC 107.
