The following information is available to help you ease into that transition. We encourage you to reach out to our mentors, staff, and one another to answer questions, and begin to build relationships that will support you throughout your time as a student.
Registration during FASET
How to Officially Register
The following videos will help guide you as you put together your ideal schedule for the fall, register for those classes, and show you some of the many ways that Explore LLC can help you throughout your first year.
We’re to meet you all! Since we can’t meet in person at FASET this year, so we are hosting a virtual Q&A session that you can join to meet the Explore Staff, some of our past Explore Students, also known as Legacies, and ask us Explore-specific questions, registration (specifically about Explore Reserved courses), and life at Tech.
While registration will formally open at 2:00 pm, we will be available starting at 1:30 p.m. This session is optional. Here is the LINK for Meeting for the Explore FASET Session on Tuesday, June 23rd from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm. Since there is a limited number of people who can join at a time, we ask that only the student sign-on. Families off each student may view and listen if they wish from that screen. Please make sure to follow the FASET schedule inclusive of academic advising for course registration questions and guidance most relative to your specific major.

GT 1000 is the ONLY REQUIRED COURSE for Explore. You may take any section you desire, but we put a strong emphasis on the Explore or College of Science major-specific sections. iGniTe students completed their requirement over the summer.
It is HIGHLY SUGGESTED that you select Explore-reserved courses in all situations that you can. You will then be in lab or class with only other Explore students, and therefore able to easily meet for group work, test-prep, study sessions, or ask your neighbor down the hall a question about what the TA may have said.
Below are a list of classes that have specifically been reserved or suggested for Explore students in 2020. (2021 to be released in Spring of 2020)
Note: In the past we have had a large number of students try to take ENGL 1102 and not be able to get into the course because if capacities. This year, we will be focusing on reserving seats in the spring, which will allow us to reserve a higher number of sections and classes, based on student interests, time, and available professors. If you have already received credit for ENGL 1101, PLEASE WAIT TO TAKE ENGL 1102 in the spring with the Explore LLC cohort. This will allow you to work in teams of Explore students, making coordinating group projects and other assignments simpler.
Note: Many of the sections listed above are STUDIO sections. This is mandatory for some courses (indicated by **), and optional for others (indicated by *). All sections listed WITHOUT a * are the mandatory lecture for that course. For example, should you chose to register for Math 1551 E, you would be required to also register for Math 1551 E02 or E03.
