When preference selection closes, places will be assigned on the basis of a computerized lottery designed to maximize student preferences. The results will be pushed to student schedules by 5:00 PM on April 11. If you decide not to take the course to which you are assigned, please remove it from your registration worksheet by April 18, so as to open the space for your fellow students.

If you miss preference selection or are not admitted to a section you selected, you may request instructor permission to enroll via YCS during registration period for continuing students, April 18 - May 4.

Senior Seminars

Current and rising senior English majors who need a senior seminar to fulfill the requirements of the major are encouraged to participate the online preference selection period, April 4 at 8:00 AM through April 6 at 5:00 PM.
