Fall 2017 Offerings

First-Year Community Application 17-18

In general, enrollment in First-Year Communities is first-come, first-served. The specific process varies by kind of community, as explained below.

Students who apply by May 5th will have priority consideration for housing Living-Learning and Theme Communities. If interested in the Living Learning Communities and/or Theme Communities, you must also complete the Housing Application (also due May 5th).

The First-Year Community administrative team will review the First-Year Community Applications and Housing Applications to determine placements in housing Communities. You will be informed of which Living-Learning Community or Theme Community you are placed in. For Living-Learning Communities, the Registrar’s Office will enroll you in the courses before Island View Orientation. You will have a chance to learn more about your housing Community at Island View Orientation

For the STEM Success Integrative Learning Community, acceptance will be on a first-come first-served basis through the First-Year Community Application. You will be informed of your acceptance into the community before Island View Orientation. Registration in the co-requisite linked courses will be by permission number. Permission numbers will be provided to incoming freshman declaring a STEM major, or undeclared freshmen interested in STEM majors, at Island View Orientation.

For the remaining non-residential Learning Communities (Multicultural, International, Integrative and Community Engagement), you will enroll yourself (the two courses are co-requisites) at the same time that you enroll for your other classes when registration opens on July 6th Again, this is first come first serve. The First-Year Community Application informs us of your interest, which is helpful for our planning process for Island View Orientation.

NOTE: The courses for Living-Learning Communities and Learning Communities are not your full schedule of classes. You will have the opportunity to round out your schedule during Island View Orientation to be ready for your Enrollment Appointment on July 6th.
