How do students register for FIGs?

Incoming students will register for FIGs throughout the summer during their Advising and Orientation (A&O) session. A&O sessions run from the end of June through middle of September. Your course in a particular FIG may not fill until the end of the summer (middle of September). 98% of FIGs fill by the end of summer and we will keep track of FIGs that are having trouble filling. We can work with you to manage and keep track of enrollment. 

Students register through the Parent GEN ST 199: University Community course. Learn more about GEN ST 199 here
