Traditionally, students take this course in their first semester of college.  Honors students are required to take an honors section of the course, even if they have already taken FYE 1220 as a dual enrollment student unless granted an exception from the Honors College. Dual enrollment students who choose to attend Georgia Southern after high school graduation may be required to take this course if they are not exempt. 

Exemption Policy and Waivers

Students may be exempt from taking FYE 1220 if they have earned 30 or more hours of dual enrollment credit or have taken an equivalent course that has similar learning outcomes to FYE 1220. Students will be notified by their major-specific academic advisor if they are exempted from the course.
