Open Enrollment Seminars

The seminars below are open for enrollment in Axess; the list is updated as multiple seats become available and the waitlist has been exhausted.

KEEP CHECKING BACK! If a seminar now shows as full, spaces often open up as students finalize their study list through to the beginning of Spring quarter. As a courtesy, please let the instructor know when you enroll. Freshmen, Sophomores and first-year transfers still have preference, although an instructor may also grant permission to upperclassmen as well.

 "An IntroSem will provide you with awesome experiences that you can't get anywhere else. Connections made with professors can lead to amazing research opportunities later on." - Stanford Student, '16
