The following Winter seminars have space available and will open for self-enrollment at 9PM on Thursday, December 1st. No statement of interest or permission number is required. Starting December 2nd, this page will update weekday mornings (M-F) through Friday, January 20th. 

Please note that this page will not update during the university’s Winter closure, December 21st – January 3rd.

Preference 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.

Availability of open spots will change as students self-enroll, first come, first served. When attempting to enroll, check 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.

IntroSems not listed on this page have instructor-managed waitlists. Courses with waitlists are currently full and are not open for self-enrollment in Axess. They require a permission number from the instructor to enroll when there is space 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 Axess lets you enroll.
