Graduate Enrollment

Undergraduates have priority for enrollment. Graduates may enroll in a creative writing course only after all undergraduates have been placed. 

How to enroll in a Creative Writing Course:

  1. Attend the first class meeting to see if space is available.
  2. If space is available, you must obtain the instructor's permission to enroll.

Enrolling on Axess

  • You can only enroll on Axess after receiving a permission number, which will be given to you at the second or third class meeting.
  • If you must enroll in Axess to meet the 12-unit study list requirement, temporarily enroll in English 198 with Tom Kealey. Do not forget to drop this class once you have received your permission number.
