Freshman Learning Communities

At Incept, freshmen students will have an opportunity to sign up for Freshman Learning Communities. Freshman Learning Communities (FLCs) involve pre-planned schedules of courses that groups you with other students with similar interests and sets your education on the right track. FLCs offer first year students an opportunity to connect with Georgia State University and each other during the fall semester. Through their involvement in an FLC, students form a small, friendly community within a large, research university.

Each FLC falls under one of the eight fields of interest (Business, Education, Health Sciences, Humanities, Policy Studies, Social Sciences, Undeclared) and is composed of four or five courses from the Core Curriculum, plus the GSU 1010 New Student Orientation course serving as the foundation for the development of strong academic skills.

While FLCs are loosely organized around colleges, you do not have to declare a major in order to register for an FLC. If at the end of the first semester you decide to select a major in a different area, you can be sure that your courses will count as part of your general education requirements.

What do FLCs offer?

  • Smooth transition from high school to university life and culture.
  • Immediate connection to other students, faculty, campus and Atlanta communities.
  • Introduction to university resources and services.
  • Higher success rates in GPA, retention and time it takes to graduate.
  • Exposure to a wide variety of academic themes.
