The First-Year Experience is designed to meet the following goals:
All students who meet one of the following conditions are required to complete successfully the First Year Experience, including FSEM 111, FSEM 112 and FSEM 113.
All other students must successfully complete their first year seminar within their first year at Bethany. Students who do not successfully complete their First Year Seminar in the Fall term will be required to make up this course during the Spring term of their first year. Additionally, students who do not successfully complete FSEM 112 (Connections: A Personalized College Experience) in the Fall term of their first year will be required to register for, and successfully complete, the course in the Fall term of their sophomore year. Students who do not successfully complete FSEM 113 (First Year JTerm Experience) will be required to register for, and successfully complete this course in the May term of their first year, at additional expense. If these courses are not successfully completed, students will not be eligible for graduation.
