Winter Study 2019

Winter Study Registration

The first phase of Winter Study registration in PeopleSoft/Student Records will take place Wednesday, November 7, 9AM EST, through Sunday, November 11.

Some courses required early applications and are already closed; some may be open but require instructor consent. Browse through the Winter Study course offerings and, for courses that interest you, drill down to the Catalog Details to find the course enrollment and consent status. Or you can research courses of interest in the online catalog search or by drilling down to department Winter Study offerings.

Registration for this first phase is not on a first come/first choice basis—for overenrolled courses, instructors will select students after 11/11. Students who are dropped from courses will have a second chance to register 11/26 – 11/30 with open spaces on a first-come, first-served basis at that point.

Questions about Registration?

Check the Registrar’s website or contact the Registrar’s Office at registrar@williams.edu or x4286.

MYTH: Preregistration is first-come first-served.
FACT: It doesn’t matter whether you register at 9:01 am on 10/29 or 7:59am on 11/6, you will have equal consideration for the course. All courses are open at this point. You should read the enrollment preference in the online catalog description; that will give you an idea of your chances if the course overenrolls. Check the Registration Timeline for information on when enrollments are reviewed and how you’ll know if you don’t get in to your first choice of courses.

MYTH: It doesn’t matter what you preregister for – you can always change courses later.
FACT: Preregistration is your best chance of getting in to a course you want. Many courses will be closed once preregistration is over.

Gas Explosion Crisis Support in Lawrence, MA

This September, Lawrence, MA was in a state of emergency after there was a series of gas explosions, leaks, and fires in about 100 homes. 18 year old Leonel Rondon died and half the city had to evacuate. Shelters have been filling up as working class Black and Latinx immigrant people have nowhere to go in a city that already had a major housing crisis. People need funds for emergency housing and childcare because schools are shut down and companies require displaced people to continue working. Columbia Gas, the company responsible, refuses to properly compensate people for their loses.

 

If you’d like to find out how you or your campus club and organization can support the crisis survivors, contact Soha at ss17@williams.edu. If you’d like to make a donation, you can do so at Venmo: @LawrenceCrisisResponse, Cashapp: $SNVillar, or Paypal Soha.sanch@gmail.com.
