Registration Activities

We know you have many questions about what you should do over the summer as you get ready to come to Brandeis. We have three important activities for you to complete this summer (and some keys dates) as you prepare to come to campus.

Month of May 2017

Online Writing Assessment

The online writing assessment helps determine your placement in first year writing courses. The assessment is available on May 9, 2017 and students must complete the assessment by May 26, 2017.

Results of the writing assessment will be e-mailed by June 9. For more information, visit the Online Writing Assessment page or contact the Senior Academic Coordinator for the Writing Program, Rebecca Mahoney (rmahoney@brandeis.edu).

Rank Your UWS Preferences

The University Writing Seminar (UWS) is a requirement for all first-year students. The topics for each section of UWS vary. All new students, whether coming to Brandeis in the fall or in the spring, should participate in the UWS selection process. From June 13 - June 23, you can log into Sage and rank your top choices. Students may enroll in a UWS in the fall or spring during their first year. However, students who enroll in Composition (COMP) in the fall must take UWS in the spring.

Enrollment in each seminar is limited, and students are asked to rank their preferences for UWS classes. A lottery process is used to assign students to one of their choices; the majority of students receive one of their top five choices. To rank your top choices, log into your Student Center in Sage. In the Academics section, click on the "Required Seminar Pre-Selection" link.

To view the list of UWS sections offered by time and topic, please visit the schedule of classes for fall and spring. Click on the Course # for a complete description of the topic.

Brandeis offers a composition course (COMP) for incoming students who would benefit from additional writing instruction. Students placed in COMP select their section by schedule only.

You will know your assigned UWS section before July registration, and can swap into any open section during July registration and during August registration before the first day of classes.
