Students interested in enrolling in College Writing 151 must
- fulfilled the university's reading and
composition 1A and 1B requirements (that is, students cannot
be concurrently fulfilling the R&C requirement)
- junior or senior class standing,
- minimum junior or senior class level,
or instructor approval
(Please note: Class standing and level are not
the same. Class standing is based on the number
of college-level course units a student has completed, class
level is based on time at a college or university.
A junior or senior class level, thus, assumes the completion
of least four semesters on campus; students transferring into
UC Berkeley must be transferring in as a junior or senior. For
more information, please see the FAQs page.)
In addition to these prerequisites, students
must attend the first 3 days of class to keep or secure a place
in the course.
enrollment priorities for spring
Students with a declared graduation
date of May 2013 have enrollment priority, followed by students
graduating in December 2013. As space allows, the class may admit
students with an expected graduation date of May 2014, but these
students may not necessarily be moved into the course prior to
the first class meeting.
Students planning to graduate after December
2014 are not eligible to enroll in the course at this time.
Regardless of their enrollment priority, all students wanting
to enroll in the course must add their name to the College Writing
Students who are on the CW 151 waitlist
will be given a Course Entry Code (CEC) during the first week
of class, not before. CECs will be assigned to students in the
order students appear on the waitlist, if they have fulfilled
the prerequisites noted above.
To help students settle their schedules
faster, students may be moved into the course prior to the first
day of class, according to College Writing Programs enrollment
priorities. However, students who are moved into the course prior
to the first day of class must attend the first three days of
class to retain their place in the course; students who do not
attend the first three days will be dropped so that students
in attendance can add the class.
