Section Preferences and Assignment

  • To be assigned to a PWR section, each quarter students assigned to that quarter will be invited to rank their top 7 section preferences.*
  • All students should complete their section preferences by the initial preference deadline.
  • Any student who does not receive an assignment needs to contact pwrcourses@stanford.edu for placement in a section.
  • Any student who misses the initial preference deadline needs to contact pwrcourses@stanford.edu for instructions for submitting late preferences. There is no guarantee a student will be placed in a section if they miss the preferences deadline.

If you need to change your section after your initial assignment, please contact pwrcourses@stanford.edu. Quarter changes are not allowed after section assignment.

* We are handling enrollment differently for summer quarter. Students will receive a form to list their preferences. Course assignment will be announced by May 18.
