Fall 2017 Courses

Information on distribution credit for Arts & Sciences undergrads: Some ExCollege courses have already been submitted to the Academic Review Board (ARB) for possible credit toward distribution requirements. Check with the ExCollege first before petitioning the ARB for credit. You may petition to have a course count for everyone in the class, or just for yourself as a one-time approval. Only one ExCollege course may be used toward the foundation or distribution requirements. After checking with the ExCollege, please follow these instructions.

For the first time in its history, Experimental College courses are open for registration on SIS beginning in April along with all other undergraduate courses.
