Excited to start at FLC?

Orientation, and our pre-orientation programs like PEAK Experiences, are super fun ways to start out your journey at FLC. While you’re making plans for those parts, make sure you’re keeping an eye on some of the other important steps that set you up for a great first year at FLC.

Once you’re registered for classes, and you know what books you’ll need, you can buy or rent those books while you’re sitting in your pajamas eating cereal—no need to go in-person and wait in lines.
