Course Description

First Year Studies Seminar is a course designed for a student's first semester at the college. The one (1) credit course, which is offered on a graded basis (A, B, C, N), affords students the opportunity to learn and practice methods necessary for college success. The course provides students with advisement, counseling, and university resources that will enable them to select or confirm an appropriate academic major. The First Year Studies Seminar helps the student to develop academic and study skills and to organize an academic plan for the completion of a bachelor's degree. In addition, it supplies information on campus resources, assists in laying the groundwork for choosing a major and planning a career, eases the transition from high school to college, and generally helps students feel connected to the university and campus. At Robert Morris University, we know that making the transition from high school to college poses many challenges for a freshman, particularly adjusting to the rigors of academic life. The First Year Studies Seminar is designed to facilitate freshmen acclimation to the college experience. Working closely with the Center for Student Success, the program includes an orientation, seminar course, academic advisement, and various workshops to meet the changing needs of incoming freshmen.
