Maymester is an exciting opportunity for students to immerse themselves in a range of academic, experiential, and research-based learning programs directly following Spring Semester. Each course is designed for first-year students transitioning into their sophomore year. However, a small number of spaces are available for more tenured students, so please contact program leader directly to see if you are eligible for any of FLC’s Maymester offerings.

While tuition and fees are waived for the SOAR program, partial and full scholarships are available for both EXCEL and Research courses. Please see below for specific details on each program, and who to contact with questions or to sign up!
