Q:Can I take more than one FYS?
Typically, you are limited to one, and you will not be allowed to enrolled in a FYS for the spring semester if you’re enrolled in the fall until a certain date. I don’t think first-years are allowed more than one FYS in a semester.
If a first year student didn’t take an FYS in the fall, they get the first chance to take one in the Spring- followed by students who already took one. There are usually some left over, so definitely don’t give up on it in the Spring even if you took one in the fall. Take advantage of the opportunity to learn from an experienced professor.
As for being in two at a time, I heard that this actually is possible. They need to fill up seats in the FYSs, so if there’s one that just wont fill, you can take it even if you’re already enrolled in one. It’s rare that this will happen, especially first semester, but it can’t hurt to try.
