How To Register

Fresh Connections learning communities are available in the Fall semester to first-time, full-time freshmen.

Enrollment is limited to 25 students per learning community. In some classes you will attend lectures with a larger group of students, but you and the professors will know the members of your community in the class. Instructors will be working together to coordinate their classes and your assignments around the theme of the community.

Talk to your academic advisor about registering for a Fresh Connections Learning Community! They will assist you in selecting a community that is right for you and your plan of study. Your advisor will help you in obtaining the necessary permits to register for a Fresh Connections Learning Community.
