Cornerstone

The Cornerstone course will allow students the extra opportunity to develop skills and integrate more fully into their new study environment at FIC. Cornerstone is also streamlined into FIC current programs to ensure students learn the most essential skills for their academic success. Cornerstone students will develop skills in relationship to other course offerings at FIC. Students who pass CNST101 are not required to take ILS101/ILSA101.

 
Students may not defer in their first semester of study. Students who fail the Cornerstone program MAY RETAKE the course up to one time. Cornerstone students who fail the Cornerstone program twice will be required to withdraw. If a student is required to only retake CNQS there is a $500.00 fee
