    We hope you are all adapting to the changes for classes and campus activities due to precautions taken for the Coronavirus. We understand you are receiving a lot of emails about changes, however, the department wanted to post a message with information specific to FYCS.  


    Please continue to attend classes virtually and stay informed regarding campus activities. Classes are still meeting during regular class periods, so do not forget to attend class! Be sure to download Zoom if you have not already as this is the method most classes will be using to facilitate activities and course content.



    Summer Practicum deadlines are still in place. There are no plans at this time to change the April 3rd by 1pm deadline. Also, since April 3rd falls after the 2-week campus restrictions, hand delivered packets are still required. If something is to change, we will let you know via email.



    Advising will be held via Zoom unless your assigned Academic Advisor has said otherwise. Other options for advising could be: Phone, Email, Skype, FaceTime, and Google Duo.


    Advanced Registration for Summer and Fall:

    Registration is to continue as usual. Please be sure to remove your holds and check for your assigned date and time. We will not register you before your assigned date and time. Also, if a course is departmentally controlled or outside the department, you will need to wait for it to become available. We will not override another departments restrictions. As for FYCS departmentally controlled courses, this will be primarily for Summer Courses. If you are not graduating in Summer 2020, you will not be permitted to register for these courses.


    Summer 2020 classes:

    As of right now, Summer 2020 classes are to be held on campus. Any changes to this will be reflected in the Schedule of courses and via email.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to this office and/or your assigned academic advisor.
