A) The First Year Seminar is a required course for all beginning freshmen at Indiana University East. Beginning freshmen must take this course in their first semester at Indiana University East. Beginning freshmen entering in a summer term must take the course during the next fall semester. For the purpose of this policy, beginning freshmen include transfer students with no more than 12 credit hours of transferring course work.
This requirement does not apply for graduate students, non-degree seeking students and transient students.
B) The course will be delivered under UCOL-U 101 First Year Seminar for 2 credit hours. Alternatively, students admitted into the Honors Program can fulfill their first-year seminar requirement by taking HON-H 100 Freshman Honors Seminar for 3 credit hours or a combination of the online UCOL-U 101 First Year Seminar and HON-H 209 Introduction to Honors Program.
The course schedule listing of the seminars may include designators that a certain seminar is intended for students who wish to major in a specific discipline. However, this designation is a recommendation only. Admission to an academic program may not be contingent on a student having completed a specific section of the seminar.
