Most of the learning communities offered in the Spring link two CORE courses together. This allows students to satisfy two core course requirements in one block of time! Be sure to check your degree plan so you register for courses that will help meet your educational goals.

Please note: In order to register for a learning community, you must enroll in both of the linked courses. On the registration page, enter the CRNs for both courses at the same time. If you try to register for only one of the linked courses, you will receive a registration error. For step-by-step instructions, visit the Registration Steps page.
