Over-enrollment Policy

The Writing Program does not permit students to add full WR classes because maintaining a smaller class size is essential for seminar-style writing courses.

If you have extenuating circumstances that make it necessary for you to register for a WR course that is full, you may submit a petition using the form below. Interest in a particular topic is not considered to be an extenuating circumstance. Both the director of the Writing Program and the instructor of the WR section must approve your request. If your petition is approved, the Writing Program will register you for the section. The Writing Program does not use add/drop forms.
