All students must take WRITING 101 their first year. It is randomly assigned to students for either fall or spring semester. Each WRITING 101 section has a unique theme, but they all offer a foundation in university-level writing.

If you are assigned to take WRITING 101 in the fall, you will have a message on DukeHub, under the Registration section telling you this. You are required to register for the course in the fall if you are assigned to take it in fall. Those who are not assigned to WRITING 101 for fall will not see a  message and will receive this notification when registering for the spring semester.
