The following information was emailed to lower-division students (students who have not yet declared a major). Students who have declared a major will work with their major adviser to be advised and obtain their PIN.
This email is meant to serve as both a reminder and provide you with pertinent information regarding the upcoming Fall 2015 registration period.

Here’s to you having a smooth registration process!
Here are two additional pieces of information from the Office of Academic Advising:
From the English department regarding Division II core literature courses:
Lower division advisers should know that all 100-level English classes that count for the Division II requirement (Eng150, Eng165, Eng175, Eng185, Eng190) are designed to have equivalent levels of difficulty. All 100-level core courses require roughly 20 pages of formal writing, and have similar reading loads. In past semesters, sections of Eng150 have filled, with wait lists, long before the sections of Eng175, 185 and 190 have reached capacity. Please remind your students that Eng185 and Eng190 are NOT more difficult than Eng150 and Eng165. Also, please tell students planning to major in English that they should enroll in a 200-level gateway course (rather than a 100-level core course), and that ALL students are welcome to fulfill the divisional requirement with any one of our 300-level English courses.
In sum, students seeking to fulfill the Division II requirement should be encouraged to distribute themselves equally across the 100-level options, not limiting themselves to Eng150. If students want more information about the Spring 2015 offerings in core literature, you can direct them tohttp://college.wfu.edu/english/course-information/core-requirements/. Descriptions of the Fall 2015 core literature courses will soon be available athttp://college.wfu.edu/english/course-information/
