FLC & Your Housing

Many students find it difficult to understand the difference between their academic FLC and their housing options. Here is a quick guide to help you understand.

Academic FLCs are your academic classes. Housing is where you live. Almost all academic FLCs are not connected to housing and students can live anywhere on campus. All incoming freshman are encouraged to participate in an academic FLC.

Option 1: If you are not living on-campus, you are encouraged to participate in an academic FLC. You will select an academic FLC using the My First Year Checklist. The other courses that complete your schedule will be selected at Orientation.

Option 2: If you are applying to live on-campus, housing offers residential academic communities (ACE, First-Gen, or FYE). These residential academic communities have academic FLC coursework connected to them and you will NOT need to select an academic FLC. The other courses that complete your schedule will be selected at Orientation.

Option 3: If you are applying to live on-campus, housing offers themed communities. Students living in themed communities do not have coursework connected to them and you will still need to select an academic FLC using the My First Year Checklist. The other courses that complete your schedule will be selected at Orientation.
