Academic Planning

Welcome to Reed College academics!

Browse through the academic planning pages for an overview of Reed’s advising and registration process, how you can expect to work with your adviser, and a video introduction from many of our academic departments. 

You will meet with your adviser and register for classes on January 16 during Orientation. Until then, explore our academic department pages to learn about the various programs of study at Reed. If applicable, take some time to look through the Humanities 110 page, which will give you more information about this foundational course required of all first year students.

The Reed College Bookstore

The bookstore is a nonprofit, institutionally-owned shop that supports the educational mission of the college. All of your textbooks and school supplies can be purchased at the bookstore, which also provides textbook reservations, textbook buyback, textbook rentals, bookstore accounts, special orders, and a textbook scholarship program.
