FYE 1220: First-Year Seminar
FYE 1220 is a two-hour seminar that serves as an introduction to college-level inquiry and campus engagement at Georgia Southern University. FYE 1220 exposes students to a variety of topics such as information literacy at the college level, academic and non-academic resources, diversity & inclusion, and student success. The course also serves as an opportunity to research academic programs and career opportunities. For additional information on the course, click here.
Traditionally, students take this course in their first semester of college. Dual enrollment students are encouraged to do the same if their schedule allows, unless they are planning on applying to the Honors Program at Georgia Southern. 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 Program. Dual enrollment students who choose to attend Georgia Southern after high school graduation must take this course if they have not already done so. Students who wish to take the course while in the dual enrollment program should let their advisor know.
Waivers for this required course are only available to students who began the dual enrollment program before Summer 2016. Those students must have attended Georgia Southern full-time for two semester or have 30 credit hours earned at Georgia Southern (this does not include hours earned from AP exams).
Students who choose to attend Georgia Southern after high school who began the dual enrollment program in Summer 2016 or later must take FYE 1220 regardless of hours earned. Students have the option and are encouraged to take FYE 1220 while in the dual enrollment program, as it is an approved course, but it is not required until matriculation after high school graduation.
