HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR THE COURSE?

There are no prerequisites for the course. All Week One courses require reading and preparation before classes begin on January 10, 2022. Students will be emailed information about course materials and instructions for their Week One course in December.

HOW AM I EVALUATED?

First-Year Week One courses are highly participatory and graded on a pass/fail basis. The faculty do not expect you to be experts and will not grade you on the quality of your work, in or outside of class. Instead, you will be evaluated solely on your attendance and participation. For that reason, you must be present and on time for all class sessions and complete all class assignments.

WILL I EARN CREDIT, AND HOW AM I CHARGED?

JD students earn 1 credit toward the 85 credits needed to graduate. The 1 credit counts toward the 6 credits of experiential coursework required of students matriculating as first-year students in Fall 2016 or later.

The credit is graded Pass/Fail (a "P" will appear on your transcript next to the course name) and is counted in the Spring semester courseload. Note: this pass/fail credit does not count against the 7 credits of pass/fail coursework you can elect to take as an upperclass student.

Course tuition is included in the spring full-year tuition (for full-time students); part-time students pay the per-credit tuition rate for the Spring semester.

Week One Enrollment Process

HOW MANY STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN WEEK ONE 2022?

We expect to offer approximately 300 seats with class sizes no larger than 24 students.

WHEN WILL ENROLLMENT TAKE PLACE AND HOW DO I REGISTER?

Please see the "Key Dates" section on the main Week One webpage for information about the First-Year Week One 2022 registration process.

WHAT IF I OBTAIN A SEAT IN A WEEK ONE COURSE BUT THEN DECIDE NOT TO TAKE THE COURSE?

Due to the intensive nature of Week One courses, the small-group, team, and individual work that is involved, and the preparation that is necessary to ensure a positive student experience, students who wish to drop their Week One course must do so by no later than Monday, November 29, 2021 at 3:00 p.m.

If a student wishes to withdraw from a Week One course after Monday, November 29, 2021 at 3:00 p.m., they must secure the permission of their professor and the Assistant Dean for Experiential Education. The Assistant Dean will only grant such requests when remaining enrolled in the course would cause significant hardship for the student.

Students who are enrolled but do not attend the first class session will be withdrawn from the course, with a "W" posted on their transcript next to the course name.
