FLC & Your Housing

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

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

Option 1: If you are not living on-campus, you are encouraged to participate in an FLC. You will learn more about FLCs and select one during Summer Orientation. The other courses that complete your schedule will be selected at Orientation.

Option 2: If you are applying to live on-campus, housing offers Academic communities (ACE, First-Gen, or FYE). These Academic communities will have required coursework connected to the program and you will learn about them during Summer Orientation. 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 but will still have the opportunity to learn more about FLCs and select one during Summer Orientation. The other courses that complete your schedule will be selected at Orientation.
