Preference Selection

Students who need to fulfill the requirements of the English Major are encouraged to participate in preference selection for the foundational courses and senior seminars during the preference selection period, Tuesday, November 1 at 8:30 a.m. through Friday, November 4 at 5:00 p.m. 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 p.m. on Thursday, November 10. If you decide not to take the course to which you are assigned, please remove it from your schedule right away in order to open the space for your fellow students.
