2016-2017 Composition Courses

Note:  Please refer to the Registrar's website for a detailed registration timeline. Please note that you may add or swap open Fall COMP sections until August 31st, at which time you will need the permission of the Director of University Writing.

Fall 2016 sections of Composition may be found here. Please select 'Spring 2017' in the upper left corner to view Spring 2017 sections.

Please note that there are two different Composition sections: COMP 1a and COMP 1b. COMP 1a is primarily for non-native speakers of English. If English is not your first language, we recommend you select a section of COMP 1a for your requirement. Enrollment to COMP 1b is open to native speakers of English.

Students may fulfill Composition with either 1a or 1b and are encouraged to swap into a section that fits their schedule on a space available basis. 

Students placed in Composition (excluding midyears) will participate in the UWS lottery for Spring 2017 only. Midyears placed in Composition will participate in the lottery for the following academic year.
