If you are eligible to register for an Option A writing credit, you should bid zero points to add this writing credit to your schedule. Students must be registered for the related seminar in order to register for the Option A writing credit. If you exercised the priority option during Fall 2020 Cycle #1, this does not enroll you in the Option A writing credit. You must separately add this writing credit.

•     Option B Writing Credit:
Students electing Option B writing credit do not have to register for this option. 

•     Registering for Teaching Assistant and Research Assistant Credits:
The Office of Records and Registration will register students for Teaching Assistant and Research Assistant credits based on information submitted by your professor.

•     Faculty Permission Only Classes:
Please follow the information stated in the course description regarding enrollment in permission of instructor courses. The professor will provide the Office of Records and Registration with a list of permitted students or the student may submit a permission of instructor form.  At that time, a waiver will be entered on your COURSES record and the Office of Records and Registration will notify you that you are able to register for the class. You are responsible for bidding zero points on the class, effectively registering yourself.
