 Learning Community
Learning Communities help you make a fast, smooth, and easy transition to FAU!
Connect with 20-24 other students who share similar interests by taking the same classes together your freshman year. Learning Communities make it easier to meet people, make friends and form study groups while connecting you through shared experiences and themed activities. 
OVER 25 different communities to choose from!
In a Learning Community you will: 
  • Get to know people and make friends in your major or area of interest from the 1st day
  • Build relationships to make FAU’s campus feel more personal
  • Maximize your academic success
  • Get connected to FAU resources
  • Increase your likelihood to graduate on time
  • Develop a supportive network consisting of other students, peer mentors, and professors
  • Have fun!


*Learning Communities are open to Boca Campus freshmen ONLY.

*Music, Architecture, Honors College, and University Honors Program students and students with prior credit for a student success course are not eligible to join the Learning Community program.


Living-Learning Community (LLC) Program

Students in Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) enroll in a common full-time course schedule (4-5 classes) based on their major or interest.  LLC students have the added benefit of living and studying together in Glades Park Towers (GPT) on the same floor as the rest of their learning community.

As a student in an LLC you also have the advantage of using FAU’s Get Wise Center that is located in the lobby of GPT! LLC students can get tutoring, advising, and career counseling without ever leaving their building!


Freshman Learning Community (FLC) Program

Students in an FLC enroll in a common full-time course schedule (4-5 classes) based on their major or interest with the flexibility to live in any freshman residential hall or commute from home.
