Am I required to take GNST 102: First Year Seminar?
If you start at Biola as a freshman (your first semester at Biola was directly after you last semester of high school), then you are required to take GNST 102: First Year Seminar in your first semester. If you do not take or pass First Year Seminar in your first semester, then you are required to contact the Advising Center to take an arranged course for that requirement.
If you start at Biola as a transfer student (you took at least 12 credits of transferrable coursework in between finishing high school and coming to Biola), then you are exempt from this requirement. You will not receive credit, but the requirement is waived.
I switched majors! Do I need to take the First Year Seminar over again for my new major too?
No. You are only required to take one GNST 102: First Year Seminar course, even if you switch majors.
