Fourth Year Student Instructions for SOLUS Preselection Process

Available June 19th through June 24th.

When selecting your courses for Advanced Course Selection, be sure to add them to your shopping cart in order of preference. As you add a course to your shopping cart, it is date and time stamped. That is the information that we will use to determine your order of preference. If your first choice is offered in the fall term, add it first. If your next choice is offered in the winter term, you must change terms first and then add your next choice. Follow this process until you have added all of your course requests to your shopping cart.

In this PDF example, the student is a medial in ENGL and HIST so she will be preselecting her 4th year courses in both of these subject areas.

Advanced Course Selection Example (PDF, 317 KB)

This is a new system this year.  You will have priority selection for your courses going into 4th year. Part of this process involves something called “pre-selection.” In pre-selection, ahead of SOLUS class selection, you have the ability to select certain courses ahead of time that we pre-approve you for. There is no guarantee that you will be enrolled into your preferred courses, but we do our best to maximize selections across all students (e.g., please recognize that with 140 majors, only 25 can get into each seminar). Courses that you can pre-select for include seminars, labs, 300-level courses, and statistics courses. Please ensure that you are selecting courses that you require to graduate—run your AAR in SOLUS to determine what you need in terms of Cluster A, B, etc. You can find your degree requirements HERE, and find out how to run your AAR HERE
