All first-year, full-time students entering Kennesaw State University with fewer than 15 semester hours are required to complete a First-Year Seminar or join a Learning Community and complete all courses that comprise it. This requirement must be satisfied during a student’s first term of enrollment at Kennesaw State University. Students with 30 or more credit hours are not eligible to enroll in a First-Year Seminar or a Learning Community. First-Year Seminars are: KSU 1101, KSU 1111, KSU 1121, and KSU 1200.
For fall 2011, the Department of First-Year Programs will offer:
- 36 learning communities (courses linked together based on a theme or major)
- 59 sections of KSU 1101 (classic first-year seminar)
- 19 sections of KSU 1111 (globally-focused first-year seminar)
- 24 sections of KSU 1121 (community engagement-focused first-year seminar)
- 4 sections of KSU 1200 (leadership-focused first-year seminar)
"Students Connecting" is a booklet that should be read by incoming first-year students before summer orientation/registration. It explains our approach, lists learning community themes, and defines the first-year seminars. A schedule of learning communities and themed first-year seminars is also included in the booklet.
DISCLAIMER: Every effort was made to assure that the information in the "Students Connecting" booklet was accurate when it went to press. However, it is possible that some course schedule information may have changed, such as CRNs (Course Registration Numbers), instructors, rooms, and/or times. Please check the Registrar’s website for the most recent information (https://web.kennesaw.edu/registrar).
