Is taking a seminar class first year mandatory? I would rather not take a seminar section because I heard cases where the credit didn't transfer to other schools and since my major choice is tentative at the moment. However, I received an email stating that I had to schedule a seminar this fall. Is there any consequences if I ignore the warning or can I avoid taking a seminar altogether?

yeah you must take is first year no matter what...fall semester for me a lot of them were filled since my ftcap was so late so now im stuck with harder courses first semester like chem 110 and 111,econ004, math 141, and phys211 but then i will have an easier one in the spring
So what do I do if it is my second semester and cannot schedule the seminar(no availability/time) ?
- Also, what seminar are computer science majors supposed to take?
This is the meail I got:
" If you cannot or do not complete the FYS requirement by the end of the Fall ‘07 semester, you will be required to substitute a course for the FYS that will be determined by your major department after you are admitted to a major. In all likelihood the designated substitute course will be a 3-credit technical requirement."
What do they mean by technical requirement course?
To my knowledge, all majors have technical requirements. They should have a list of classes that count towards your technical requirement for our major. I think, it's to your advantage, to take a FYS this Fall semester, or you'll have to take an extra 3-credit course.
these are the fall 07 engineering seminars. (click on scheduling and then fall 07) I think you can take any of them but as karp4170 said it would be good to check with an advisor. You were planning on switching to engineering, have you done that?
There are many uses for these seminars beyond the credit you get for them, trying something new, seeing if you like it, also they are small classes and a great way to meet other kids in your major, who you will be working with in the future.
Thank you for the link rlm, the seminars for my major are already full. I might have to take the 3 course alternative instead, which I don't mind as long as I get to decide which semester to take it. Let's see...
