Q: How do I decide which learning community is the best for me?
A: Review the different Learning Community course clusters being offered. Read the course descriptions and select the cluster that sounds the most interesting to you.
Q: Do I need to register for all courses in a learning community cluster at the same time?
A: Yes. Learning Communities link two or more courses in a cluster; therefore, you will need to register for all linked courses.
Q: How will enrolling in a learning community affect my schedule?
A: It is recommended that you register for the learning community of your choice first, then you can add other courses and/or build your schedule around the learning community cluster courses.
Q: What if I cannot register for one of the linked courses because I’m not available during that time or don’t like the time that is being offered, can I register for that course at another time and added to the learning community cluster?
A: No. You will need to register for all courses linked in that learning community cluster. You may not add, change, or substitute courses.
Q: What if I want to drop one of the courses in the learning community?
A: You may not drop one course without dropping out of the Learning Community Program. One of the major benefits of participating in a Learning Community is the support you will receive throughout the school year. This added support is to ensure your success in college. If you are struggling with one of the courses, talk to your learning community professors about your concerns, challenges, and specific needs.
Q: What are the expectations of students participating in a learning community?
A: Students in Learning Communities have a unique opportunity to work collaboratively with other students and their professors to learn and develop leadership and communication skills for interactive engagement in the classroom. They will also be encouraged to participate in campus events for academic and cultural enrichment. Therefore, students are expected to apply these learned skills and actively engage in campus activities and organizations.
