2018 Fall FIG Options

We offer more than 50 FIGs each fall and each is a unique combination of courses. Many FIGs share similar ideas, so we group them into larger common themes in order to help you narrow down your choices. When selecting a FIG, be sure to look for themes or classes that seem most interesting to you.

FIG registration follows a similar timeline each year. All incoming first-year students are mailed an informational brochure in April before registration on May 15th. Though FIG registration does continue through the summer, it is first-come, first-serve. When a FIG is full, there is no waitlist. Students can see us during the summer at IntroDUCKtion to switch their FIG after the inital spring registration period has ended. After all IntroDUCKtion sessions are over, we then do registration over the phone.
