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 for placement in a section.
  • Any student who misses the initial preference deadline needs to contact for instructions for submitting late preferences. There is no guarantee a student will be placed in a section if they miss the preferences deadline.
  • Although we do not have set dates for Summer preferences at this time, we will have a limited number of PWR 1 and PWR 2 courses available summer quarter. The summer course catalog should be available mid-May.
