Enrolling in Core Literature


Students may register for Core Literature courses through the online registration system during the registration period.  If the sections are full, you may add your name to the waiting list by filling out the department’s online waiting list form or by calling the main office.  Because of the heavy demand, the department generally cannot honor requests for specific times or instructors. Individual instructors cannot give permission for you to be added to their section.  The office associates in Haley 9030 will fill openings as they become available on a first-come basis in the order of the waiting list.  After you have added your name to the waiting list, you should check your schedule on a regular basis to see if you have been added to a section.

Graduating Seniors

If you need Core Literature in your final semester to graduate, you will receive priority registration from the department when you bring your graduation verification from your advisor to the department main office.

Registration During First Week of Class

The department may announce on its website that the waiting list is closed near the beginning of the semester after the office associates have placed students who have been on the waiting list. At this time, the department can reopen sections for online registration a few days before the beginning of the semester through the first day of class.  Students who hope to adjust their schedules should check regularly for last-minute openings.  After the first day of class, the department continues to add students through the first week of class.  It is department policy not to add students after the end of the first week of class.


The prerequisite for Core Literature is a C or better in ENGL 1120 or ENGL 1127.

Transfer Credit

  It is important for students to obtain prior assurance from their advisors that particular courses taken elsewhere will fulfill Auburn’s core literature requirement. The criteria for equivalency are specified in the University Bulletin. Advisors will refer uncertain cases to the Coordinator of Core Literature.
