All first-year students who wish to take ENGL 114 or ENGL 115 are advised to preregister for a section during the online preregistration period, Monday, August 16 at 9:00 AM through Friday, August 20 at 5:00 PM. Preregistration is not required for any other English course this term, but discussion section registration for fall lecture courses will be offered on August 30; links are posted below.

Preregistration for ENGL 114 and ENGL 115

Individual descriptions of each section of ENGL 114 and ENGL 115 are posted here.


When preregistration 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 Wednesday, August 25. If you decide not to take the course to which you are assigned, please remove it from your schedule right away, so as to open the space for your fellow students.

If you miss preregistration or are not admitted to a section you selected, you may register for open seats via YCS during early registration period, which opens for new students on Monday, August 30.

Upper year students who are interested in taking ENGL 114, ENGL 115, or another English course may update their YCS registration worksheets during Add/Drop period, September 1 at 9:00 AM – September 10 at 5:00 PM.

Prospective English majors should note that preregistration will be offered for spring-term English foundational courses, ENGL 125 – 128.  Senior majors will also be invited to preregister for senior seminars at that time. Links will be posted on this page prior to spring preregistration period.

Using the links above, you may submit your preference for discussion section times between August 30 at 9:00 am and September 2 at 9:00 am. If you do not sign up before preference selection ends, a space in section cannot be guaranteed, but you may enroll in an open section through YCS after Friday, September 3, at 12:00pm.
