The following IntroSems have Space Available and are open for self-enrollment. Availability of open spots changes as students self-enroll, first come, first served. This list updates daily on weekdays, by noon.

When attempting to enroll, check SimpleEnroll or Axess for the latest enrollment as seminars listed here may become full. For any cross-listed seminars, be sure to check enrollment across all subject listings. No statement of interest or permission number is required when a seminar is open for self-enrollment. 

Preference in IntroSems is given to first-year, sophomore, and new transfer students. All students are encouraged to email the instructor when self-enrolling in an IntroSem with Space Available, especially juniors and seniors as some IntroSem instructors may limit enrollment to first-year, sophomore, and new transfer students.

If SimpleEnroll or Axess tells you that an instructor's consent is needed to enroll, that means the IntroSem has a waitlist and is closed for self-enrollment. A permission number from the instructor is required to enroll when there is Space Available in the class.



Please note that IntroSems are small courses that draw on active in-class participation, so if you are attempting to add the course in the second or third week of the quarter, be aware that some instructors may not allow you to join the seminar so late even though SimpleEnroll or Axess lets you enroll.
