Spring 2023 Registration

Updated November 2022

In order to register for a section of French – if you missed Preference Selection, or if you would like to change to a different section of the Spring semester French course for which you have enrolled – please follow the directions below.

When Registration for the Spring 2023 Semester opens this November 2022 (on different dates for each class year, between November 11 and December 2, 2022), you may “Request Instructor Permission” through Yale Course Search in order to place in a different section.   Please remove from your registration worksheet the section that you do not wish to attend, so that it may be offered to another student.  You should NOT remain on the lists of two sections at the same time.

After the close of the Registration period in December, you must wait until Drop/Add Period in January to request any changes in your schedule for any of your courses.

When the Add/Drop period begins on Monday, January 9, 2023 at 8:30am for all YC & GSAS students, you should ”Request Instructor Permission” through Yale Course Search for the desired section.  Submitting a permission request is the only way to be placed on the official waitlist for the course.  Since you will not be attending the original section in which you enrolled, please remove your name from that section on your Registration Worksheet at that time, so that it may be offered to another student.  You should NOT remain on the lists of two sections at the same time.

Starting on the first day of class,Tuesday, January 17, 2023, we encourage you to attend the section in which you hope to have a confirmed place.  Please understand that, due to enrollment limits on the class, we cannot immediately guarantee or confirm your enrollment in that section.  You should attend class for that section every day, even if you do not have confirmed enrollment.

During the first week of classes, the section instructor will let you know if and when there is, indeed, a place for you in your desired section.  The instructor will then grant formal approval to those additional students who are being admitted for enrollment to the course.  Once the instructor approves your Instructor Permission request on Yale Course Search, you can complete the registration by clicking “Confirm Changes” on your Registration Worksheet.  The Add/Drop period ends on Monday, January 23, 2023 at 5:00pm. 

Thank you for your understanding as we navigate this new enrollment process.
