Major Restrictions

The English Department restricts most 300-level and 400-level classes to majors at the beginning of registration. This gives our majors the ability to register for the classes they need to graduate.

On the 3rd day of registration, restrictions are lifted for ENG 302.

On the 5th day of registration, major restrictions are lifted from ENG 301, ENG 401, and ENG 402. ENG 418 opens to Literature juniors. ENG 307, ENG 308, ENG 309, ENG 310, and ENG 311 open to Creative Writing majors.

On the 6th day of registration, all restrictions are lifted by 9:00 a.m.

Restrictions are never lifted from ENG 443/444 or from 500-level graduate courses.

The only English minor that grants access to major-restricted classes in the Writing Studies minor. The other English minors, including the Creative Writing minor, must wait to register for classes until major restrictions are removed and the classes are open to all students.

If you have questions regarding when restrictions lift from a specific course, please look up that course on the English Department's course descriptions.
