Electronic Add/Drop for First-Year Writing Seminars

FWS Add/Drop enrollment must be done electronically through Student Center.  Neither instructors nor registrars can approve additional enrollment into any First-Year Writing Seminar.  Caps on enrollment cannot be lifted.  There are no wait-lists or forms to sign; do not ask an instructor about adding a seminar.  Instructors will not allow any student not on the roster to sit in on a First-Year Writing Seminar.

To find open First-Year Writing Seminars during the Add/Drop period:

  • Go to Student Center. 
  • At the search screen, click on “Additional Search Criteria,” 
  • Choose “FWS Session” from the “Session” field. This will show you all open FWS classes.

A First-Year Writing Seminar is open ONLY if it appears in this list.  Check frequently, because the list can change.

Electronic Add ends Wednesday, February 7, 2018.

The John S. Knight Institute for Writing in the Disciplines offers First-Year Writing Seminars (FWS) in one of the oldest and most interdisciplinary undergraduate writing programs in the world: each semester, more than 100 different courses are taught in more than 30 departments and programs located in the humanities, social sciences, expressive arts, and sciences. Over 3,000 students from across the university enroll each year in First-Year Writing Seminars that often have the most diverse mix of students offered at the university, with small classes no larger than 16 or 17 students, from all seven colleges.
