ACE students will be enrolled full-time, taking six credits towards their major, with the first three weeks on campus and the fourth, studying away. Summer ACE 2017 will offer students six different study away options with a variety of courses to choose from. As part of the program, students will enroll in one Foundation of Knowledge and Learning (FKL) course (three credits) and a linked section of University Experience (three credits). Foundation of Knowledge and Learning (FKL) courses are the foundation for the general education curriculum at USF. Below you will find available information on the courses and the location of the corresponding study away experience.
Deposited students will have the opportunity to select their course via a follow up form, which will be sent to the student from the Summer ACE staff. Courses are awarded on a first come, first serve basis. The Summer ACE staff also considers the student's intended major and previous course work earned by the student prior to course placement.
SLS 1101: University Experience
In addition to choosing one of the above General Education courses (FKL), students will be enrolled in a linked section of University Experience. University Experience is a three-credit course focused on an extended introduction to USF with emphasis on career planning, study skills, academic advising, and academic and campus resources. As a part of the course students will be working towards their requirements for the Global Citizen Award. In the University Experience course, students will also partner with the Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement (CLCE) for a community service learning opportunity with partners within the Tampa Bay community.
