First Year Experience Seminar (FYES1000) is an institutional requirement for all first-time, full-time, four year degree Dalton State College students. The course is designed to ease the transition into college. Students will learn how to balance new academic responsibilities with new freedoms through the use of time management techniques, study skills, academic planning, and test taking strategies.
In addition, FYES1000 assists students in developing strategies and attitudes which maximize student success, to familiarize students with campus resources, and to foster positive relationships with faculty, staff, and peers. Students do receive a letter grade for FYES1000 and must complete the course successfully.
Students cannot withdraw from FYES1000 without dropping all classes.
