Preregistration

For Fall 2021, many limited enrollment English courses will allow students to enroll on a first-come-first-served basis until the cap is met. Some will require “instructor permission” through YCS during enrollment in May. Other courses, especially those in Creative Writing (see link below), will require an application.

Please see the Syllabus page on Canvas for the course you are interested in taking to make sure you have completed all the application requirements for that course.

English majors who need to take a Foundational Course or Senior Seminar to fulfill their requirement will be offered the opportunity to preregister for these courses between April 6 at 9:00 am and April 21 at 5:00 pm EST.

Foundational Courses

ENGL 125 Readings in English Poetry I
ENGL 126 Readings in English Poetry II
ENGL 127 Readings in American Literature
ENGL 128 Readings in Comparative World English Literature

After the deadline, the application process will close, and places will be assigned on the basis of a computerized lottery designed to maximize student preferences. The result will be pushed to your schedule by 5:00 PM on Friday, April 30.
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.
On May 3, all students may register for any remaining seats on a first-come-first- served basis.
