Upcoming Changes
  1. FYE 1220 Curriculum: FYE does not anticipate major revision to existing outcomes of the course. FYE is, however, working with a task force of faculty, staff and students to draft a diversity, inclusion and protected speech outcome, which will be part of the course beginning Fall 2019. We will share the new outcome no later than Spring Break.
  2. Eagle Success: FYE 1220 will not be offered as part of Eagle Success, the successor to the Eagle Incentive Program, in 2019. Instead, students will take the course in the fall with other new students. We made this decision for two primary reasons: 1) the belief that eight credit hours was too many for a short summer term; and 2) FYE 1220 could help students make a smoother transition in fall semester. Accordingly, FYE is not seeking expressions of interest for summer.
