CLS 100: First Year Experience

CLS 100 is a two credit college course that prepares you to be successful in college and in life. This class is known as a "First-Year Experience" (FYE) course. Most colleges and universities have FYE courses and this course may transfer to your next college. CLS 100 is designed to assist you with the knowledge, skills and abilities you need to be successful in college and life.

Why take CLS 100?

Students who complete CLS 100 are more likely to continue in college to reach their goals. Research at GRCC has shown that students completing CLS 100 are much more likely to return for their second year than new students who did not take the course. College is an important investment in your future,

Beginning Winter 2014, new students to GRCC are required to enroll in CLS 100 their first semester if you:

  • Are a degree seeking student who has completed less than 12 transfer credits from another college or university. Or, you did not transfer credit into GRCC equivalent to PY 97 or CLS 100
  • Earned less than a 3.0 high school GPA
  • Did not test into PY 97

 CLS 100 will help you to construct your personal roadmap to college success. College success leads to life success!
