First-Year Experience Courses

First-Year Colloquium

The First-Year Colloquium (FYC) is a graduation requirement for all entering, first-time, full-time freshmen, and transfer students with fewer than 12 hours of credit (concurrent credit does not count towards the 12 transfer hours). All FYC courses carry full academic credit, are small in size, and are designed to provide a strong foundation for a successful transition to UA Little Rock.

The following table lists the recommended FYC courses. Some FYCs are aimed at students intending to major in particular subject areas, while others are limited to students in special programs and to students receiving particular scholarships. Such students will be contacted through those programs and scholarships as to the appropriate FYC for which they should register. Students intending to major in a subject area not listed in the table below may register for PEAW 1300 PEAW 1300 - The First Year Experience .

Students should consult their academic advisor before registering for an FYC.
