TOP 10 THINGS to REMEMBER in the FLC
  • The FLC is a one-semester commitment
      • You will be given an option to sign up for second semester courses – on a course-by-course basis
      • In October, the Office for Student Retention will visit your SLS/ EGN course to discuss the spring semester.
      • You MUST clear all of your registration holds (including your academic advising hold) to be eligible to register for classes with your FLC in Spring.
      • All outstanding fees must also be cleared (i.e., parking tickets, Housing fees, library fines, etc.)
      • Make sure your admission hold (high school transcript) is cleared. If not, you can’t register for spring classes!

  • Attend ALL classes ALL the time!
    • FLC is meant to be a support – not an excuse!
  • Complete all homework and reading assignments and turn in papers and assignments by deadlines. Be prepared!
  • Get the most out of the FLC – participate in FLC programs and events (study groups, workshops, discussions, advising sessions, etc.)
  • Check your FAU email regularly. We will email you about important things happening in and out of the FLC!
  • Get involved OUTSIDE of the FLC too!
