FYS 12201 First Year Seminar

Credits: 3
Prerequisites: none

The First Year Seminar transitions Center/Online/Self-Paced students to Upper Iowa University and higher education while promoting success through their academic and professional careers.  Using a collaborative learning approach, students will be guided through an intellectual journey to develop curiosity, increase critical thinking skills, and produce effectiveness and efficiency when creating academic discussions, oral presentations, and college-level writing.  Students will also engage in self-exploration that will foster growth in motivation, self-awareness, personal responsibility, time management, study skills, and personal and academic integrity.  Note:  It is expected that all students with fewer than 24 semester hours of transfer credit take the FYS course during their first year of enrollment.
