- Both courses should be completed in your first year, one in fall term and one in winter term*.
- You can take them in any order, but take only one Arts First course at a time.
- Each section of ARTS 130 and ARTS 140 has a different topic, but overall the learning outcomes and goals are the same for all topics in each course.
To prepare to add ARTS 130 or 140 to your fall course schedule, follow the steps below BEFORE July 30.
Note: Students co-registered at St. Jerome's (STJ), please select an ONLNJ designated section (ARTS 130 ONLNJ - SEM 044, 045, or ARTS 140 ONLNJ - SEM 042, 043).
Note: All GBDA students will be added to a section of ARTS 130 or 140 that fits in their schedule. You will be able to view which section you were added to when the schedule is updated. You have the option to attempt to swap into a different section if you wish, but should recognize your options are limited. Do NOT drop the section you are in. Please use the swap function only to attempt to make a change to your schedule.
Step 1: Check the list of topics and note your TOP TEN choices
- Check fall term Arts First topic descriptions for the course you plan to take: either ARTS 130 or 140.
- Make a list of at least TEN topics from the lists below. Note the four-digit class number for each topic - you'll need that to enrol in Quest.
WHY DO I NEED A LIST?
- You might not get into the first few topics when you try to enrol if they are full, since a maximum of 25 students can enrol in each ARTS 130 or 140 class.
- If you can’t get in, you have other options to ensure one will fit your schedule.

STEP 2: Starting July 30th at 9am EST, First Year Students add your fall term topic in Quest
- If you can’t get into your first choice, try your second choice, then third and so on.
- You must keep trying to add sections until you find one that you can add to your schedule.
- Follow the steps below to add your Arts First topic:
1. Once logged into Quest, in the Enroll tab, click add .
Type the 4-digit class number for your first choice topic into the “Enter Class Nbr” box, then hit enter.
If you don’t know the class number, Click search under the Find Classes heading.
Enter “ARTS” in the subject field and either “130” or “140” in the Course Number field, depending on which course you’d like to add.
If you use the 4-digit class number, that particular class will come up.
If you did a class search, your search results will list all of the topics. Click the select button next to your preferred topic. Proceed with the next steps until you have the option to select finish enrolling.
2. A green checkmark will appear in the Status column if you’ve successfully enrolled in your preferred topic.
If a red X appears and an error message, it means the course wasn’t added successfully, and you’ll need to try adding a different topic.
3. To confirm you are in ARTS 130 or 140, look back at your list of classes to confirm that you’ve added the course.
In this past example, the student is in ARTS 130, class number 4179. From their list of topics they know that the topic title of Class number 4179 is “Community for Mental Health”.
