English Advising provides advisement and permissions for English Majors and Minors, Professional Communications MinorsEnglish Graduate Studies, and all students taking Lehman English courses:

Most of our ENG/ENW 100/200-level courses meet General Education and/or Writing Intensive requirements.  Students who take a 200-level ENG or ENW course need only three more courses to complete an English Minor in Literature, Creative Writing, or Professional Writing.  Several departments outside English require their majors to take a 300-level literature or a creative/professional writing course in the English Department.

Several of our professional writing courses, including ENW 300, ENW 304, ENW 305, ENW 3070, ENW 365, ENW 3100, and ENW 3200, are required for majors in other departments, from Business and Accounting to Social Work.  Students who take ENW 201 ("writing for success") + an ENW course related to their major are already halfway to a Minor in Professional Communications.

English Major and Minor Advisement

Permission is not advising!  You must meet with an advisor to discussion Transcript Reviews, iDeclaration of Major or Minors, Transfer Credit Evaluations, Program Planning and Major Worksheets, Graduate Audits in Shuster 280, Signatures, and General Advising needs.

Be prepared!  Have your EMPLID ready.  If you are seeking transcript evaluation, have course descriptions on hand.

Waitlists, Open Seats and (No)Overtallies

Prior to the start of classes each term, waitlisted students are added to courses in order as seats become available.  Once classes begin, waitlists end and students may register only for courses with available seats.  Keep your eye open for emerging seats on CUNYfirst during Late Registration!  The English Department does not do overtallies.
