University Studies is a one-semester orientation to the university designed specifically for transfer students who enter FSU with fewer than 30 transfer credits (freshman status). The course content is comparable to that of Freshman Seminar I and II.
Freshman Seminar/University Studies Instructors serve as Mentors for all students enrolled in their respective classes. Mentors seek to help students resolve the variety of problems they may face in making the transition to the university. Mentors assist students with academic advisement and career planning during the freshman year, and direct students to other resources for assistance, as needed.
Transfer students who enter FSU with 30 or more transfer credits are not required to complete University Studies.
