FAU is committed to your successful transition to college through our FAU iSucceed (SLS 1410) and First-Year Interest Group (FIG) (SLS 1411) courses. 

Although they both start with "SLS", they each offer a different experience! To learn more, read through the  brief descriptions below or click on the navigation tabs to the left. 

SLS 1410: FAU iSucceed
