Why Choose General Studies? - Program Spotlight
The General Studies Program provides admitted university students who are deciding, or working toward acceptance into a desired program of study the opportunity to (a) enroll in courses needed for degree completion, (b) explore majors, minors and program concentrations, and/or (c) qualify for entry into a preferred area of study. Admitted students receive structured support. The program also assists students with a probationary enrollment status. Students meeting General Studies Program requirements are eligible for transfer to another academic program at Ferris State University.
FSUS and Advising Support
All first-year students in the General Studies Program enroll in the Ferris State University Seminar course - FSUS 100. The instructor of this weekly seminar is also the student's academic advisor allowing for weekly advising interactions.
