First-Year Academic Success > Participation
It gets you ahead in your academic plan. It has proven to be successful. And you make friends!
By successfully completing one or more courses during the FYAS Program, you are able to advance into the next math and/or writing course required for your degree at the beginning of your first year, which allows you to complete your math requirements earlier, saving you time.
Below, you will find the general sequence of math and writing courses that are required for your major. First, find your degree path based on your major in the sequence below. To find your starting point in the sequence, look at your math placement results in the FYAS invitation letter you received in the mail. This will tell you what math prerequisites you need to take for your major.

The classes are FREE - there is no-cost for tuition. We know that you can't put a price on education; however, below we have demonstrated the tuition savings of taking a FYAS course over the summer versus working a summer job. FYAS is a great value!
"The First-Year Academic Success program is a complimentary opportunity. It is a program that not only helps you academically, but strengthens your self-improvement. If you can give up five weeks of your summer, the outcome is so much greater than the free-time invested. The program eases you into college classes, so that come Autumn you're at the top of your game." - MAT 100 Student
"This is a very good program because it helps incoming freshman like me grab a foothold and transition smoothly into college. I definitely feel A LOT more prepared for DePaul, and I have an idea of what is expected of me now thanks to this program." - MAT 95 Student
