University
June 2003

   Congratulations and Welcome Case Western Reserve University First Year Students of 2003!!!
   I am excited to welcome you to the CWRU community. I hope that you will find CWRU a place to learn and grow; a place to
challenge yourself personally, professionally and academically; and a place where lifelong friendships and lasting memories are made.
    You will find that college life is full of new experiences, challenging academic endeavors, new and changing relationships, as well as
exciting opportunities. College is a time of transitions and at times these transitions can be challenging. As your class Dean, I am dedi-
cated to making these transitions as positive and as easy as possible. You will find a wealth of resources, services, faculty, staff and other
students ready to help you make a smooth transition to CWRU and to achieve academic success. However, it is your responsibility to
take advantage of this support. Ask questions, explore new subjects, seek out assistance and make new acquaintances. You will find that
building relationships and taking advantages of resources are every bit as important as studying hard.
     One of the first resources that you should familiarize yourself with is this document, the First Year Information (FYI) Guide. This
guide has an abundance of information and, used in concert with the other materials that are part of this packet, will help you develop
your first semester schedule. However, I urge you to take your time reviewing all of the information in this guide and the packet
before you rush to develop your first course schedule. You will soon see that you have many choices to make with regard to academ-
ic decisions and much to learn about your academic requirements. Therefore, you will benefit by carefully reviewing all of the academic
options and tasks placed before you.
    While you do have many decisions to make, you are not alone in this process. As Freshman Dean, I and the Freshman Advisers
will help you in developing your first schedule. Prior to Orientation, we will be available for you to answer your questions regarding
academic plans and schedule development. In order to answer your questions we will offer Call-In Advising Q&A Nights. In order to
take advantage of this assistance, please call (216) 368-2928 during the times listed below (all times are EST).
   Thursday, June 26th: 6:00 - 10:00 p.m.                           Thursday, July 10th: 6:00 - 10:00 p.m.
   Monday, June 30th: 6:00 - 10:00 p.m.                             Tuesday, July 15th: 6:00 - 10:00 p.m.
   Tuesday, July 8th: 6:00 - 10:00 p.m.
   Additionally, if you are in town, you may attend a group advising session to be held on Thursday and Friday, July 10th and
11th from 3:00 - 5:00 PM in Baker Building, Room 102. If you plan to attend one of these sessions, please contact the Office of
Undergraduate Studies to make a reservation no later than July 8, 2003.
    You may register for courses in two ways. You are encouraged to complete the schedule development process (and return all request-
ed forms) and then enroll in your classes via SOLAR, the CWRU on-line registration system. However, if you prefer, you may send in
your materials and I will register your classes for you. During Orientation on August 20th or 21st you will meet with your freshman
adviser who will review your final schedule with you and help you make any necessary adjustments.
    Carefully review this guide, your forms and your registration instructions and return all requested forms by July 18, 2003. Take
the time to consider your interests and your habits as you build your schedule and do not hesitate to contact me for assistance. Once
again, welcome to Case Western Reserve University! I look forward to talking with you over the summer and meeting you in August!

Sincerely,




Julie L. Amon
Assistant Dean for Freshmen

                        Differences Between High School and College
    As matriculating Case Western Reserve University students, you have already demonstrated academic excellence. Many of you come
to us with significant college credit through AP or IB coursework. Additionally some of you have also taken college courses. However,
as you start your full-time collegiate experience, you will likely notice significant differences from experiences that you had during high
school. As you contemplate the start of the fall classes and spend time developing your first schedule, review the following observations
about some of the changes that you can expect to encounter.

Determining your academic and career interests is a process. This
exploration process comprises individual reflection and assess-
ment, research, discussion, and perhaps even job shadowing and
internships. Most students declare a major at the end of their
first year or second year at CWRU. However, students frequently
change their majors and sometimes add additional majors or
minors based upon their evolving interests.

For those of you who are fairly certain of your
academic interests:
    Refer to the Major/Minor/Sequence list to identify your major
and determine which General Education/Core Curricula cor-
responds to that major. Review both the appropriate General
Education/Core Curriculum and the First Semester Schedule
Development Recommendations. If possible, develop a schedule
that allows you to test your academic interests and also explore
new topics. Make sure to discuss your discuss your interests with
your Freshman Adviser to verify that you have selected appropri-

will allow you to test those interests. Make sure to discuss your
interests with your Freshman Adviser to verify that you have
selected appropriate courses to address your interests.

    Pre-medical and pre-dental students are encouraged to explore majors in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, as well as the
natural sciences, and to pursue fields which they enjoy and in which they will perform well. To meet admission requirements of profes-
sional schools, a student may major in any subject, but must include certain science and mathematics courses in the curriculum. Both
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) programs provide strong preparation for medical and dental schools. The major-
ity of pre-medical and pre-dental students pursue the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree program, with a major(s) in either a science or a
non-science discipline. The recommended sequence of courses for pre-medical and pre-dental students is listed below. This sequence
fully prepares pre-medical and pre-dental students for professional school entrance examinations (MCAT and DAT) and meets the
admission requirements for most medical and dental schools.

                     Enhanced Course Opportunities
    Case Western Reserve University offers enhanced versions of a few of its courses. Please read the
descriptions listed below. None of these enhanced course opportunities are required or preferred for
a major. Participation is completely voluntary. If interested in the two courses that are available by
invitation only, please check your Registration Checklist sheet to determine eligibility.

ENGR 131 - Elementary Computer Programming (3)
   Some sections of this course have been reserved for students with previous programming experience.
   The enhanced sections of this course assume that students have had programming experience with
a modern programming language (i.e. C, C++, Java, Pascal, Visual Basic) and can apply this experi-
ence to a new language. The coverage of basic concepts is reduced and the lecture moves at a faster
pace in order to cover additional advanced material.
   Students may self-select into these enhanced sections.

MATH 124 - Calculus II (4) and MATH 227 - Calculus III (3)
   MATH 124 is an alternative to MATH 122, while MATH 227 is an alternative to MATH 223.
    Life being complicated, many phenomena - even those that can be described mathematically
- change. For this reason, mathematicians and others are interested in the study of change; this is cal-
culus. The knowledge of calculus is indispensable for quantitative as well as qualitative understanding
of complex phenomena.
    The enhanced calculus sequence is intended to provide superior preparation to strong prospective
math, science and engineering students with an in-depth understanding of complex phenomena. The
enhanced math sequence covers the same material in MATH 122 and 223 but covers these topics in
greater depth with an emphasis on the underlying mathematical concepts.
  Invitation only. Invited students with AP, IB or transfer credit for MATH 121 should register for
MATH 124. Invited students with AP or transfer credit for MATH 121 and 122 should register for
MATH 227.

PHYS 123 - Physics and Frontiers (4)
   PHYS 123 is an alternative to PHYS 121.
    In addition to the standard Newtonian dynamics, the course includes a popular series of frontier
lectures on fractals and chaos theory as well as lectures on special relativity and other advanced physics
concepts. As in PHYS 121, there is an associated series of laboratory experiments; the experiments are
especially tailored to the special topics covered in this enhanced course.
  Invitation only. Invited students who wish to enroll must also have as a prerequisite or corequisite,
ENGR 131 and MATH 121.

Senior Capstone Experience (3 - 6 semester hours)
The Senior Capstone Experience assimilates the knowledge and skills gained throughout the educational process. Students engage in a unique one or
two semester experience designed in consultation with a faculty member. Each Capstone Experience must include key elements:
a) Demonstration of critical thinking and writing skills;
b) Regular oversight by the Capstone adviser;
c) Periodic reporting of progress;
d) Oral reports including a final public presentation of Capstone project at a year-end celebration of scholarship

                            College of Arts and Sciences
             First Semester Schedule Development Recommendations
    The College of Arts and Sciences offers majors in fields ranging from Art Education to Physics and Classics. As you review the
sample schedules below you will quickly recognize the significant flexibility that exists. While some of the studio and performing arts
and sciences have somewhat more structure in their schedules, students pursuing interests in the College of Arts and Sciences usually
are able to design a schedule that both meets their needs and allows them to explore a variety of interests. The sample schedules listed
below are meant to serve as a starting point to developing your schedule. Each major lists certain courses that should be included in the
schedule for students who are exploring an interest in that major. For example, students interested in a Biology major should include
both CHEM 105 and MATH 121 or 125; and a student interested in Psychology, should include PSCL 101. Please note that the sam-
ple schedules listed below include only first majors as described on the Majors/Minors/Sequence list outlined earlier in the FYI Guide.

        Engineering Core Curriculum – SAGES Alternative – July 2003
   SAGES is an innovative undergraduate experience designed to establish the foundations for academic inquiry. The SAGES pilot
program enables some students the opportunity to fulfill some of their Engineering Core Requirements with a sequence of specially
developed seminars and selected courses.
SAGES Seminars (13 semester hours)
The First Seminar (4 semester hours, to be taken in the first semester of enrollment)
The First Seminar focuses on the development of critical thinking and communication skills through the use of a variety of approaches, media, and
perspectives to explore the human mind and the nature of inquiry. This course is designed to strengthen writing and analytical skills while building a
foundation in ethics, information literacy and cultural diversity.

             First Semester Schedule Development Recommendations
     The Case School of Engineering offers students a variety of majors and research areas to study within its school. However, all
Engineering degrees share a common experience - the Engineering Core. The Engineering Core requirements provide students with a
foundation in basic mathematical and engineering principles and the scientific methodology to solve complex engineering problems. In
addition, the Core introduces students to the humanities and social sciences and facilitates the development of strong communication
skills.
     As such, the first semester schedule for a student pursuing an engineering discipline is fairly structured. As you review the sample
schedules, you will notice that many sample schedules look alike, and that all include fundamental Core courses.
     However, some of you may not be completely committed to Engineering as a major and may want to have greater flexibility in your
schedule. If you feel that you fall into this category, then feel free to created a “blended” schedule, including courses from the Engineer-
ing requirements, as well as other courses of interest. If Engineering is at least a possibility, I would recommend that you do include
MATH 121 (or other calculus course, according to placement) as well as CHEM 111 to your fall semester schedule.

                                  First Semester Schedule Development Recommendations
    One of the unique characteristics of the CWRU Nursing degree is that first year students gain clinical experience in their first year.
As a result, Nursing students have very specific knowledge sets and experiences that they must include in their first semester schedules.
You will see that your first semester schedule is very structured. You will be involved in clinical, nursing, biology, Composition, Physical
Education, and General Education Requirement courses.
All Nursing students will include the following courses in their first semester schedule:
    NURS 110 - Foundations of the Discipline (1) - The course is designed to introduce the student to the practice, profession and
discipline of nursing. A futuristic perspective will provide a framework for discussion of the foundation of contemporary nursing prac-
tice within a variety of health care settings. Critical historical influences that affected the development of contemporary nursing will be
discussed. Selected trends and issues that will guide future nursing practice will conclude this course.
    NURS 111 - Foundations of the Practice (3) - This course is designed as a foundation for clinical nursing practice in relation to
the concepts of communication, safety and comfort. The three concepts will be applied to the application of fundamental nursing care.
The basic components of the nursing process are presented as a framework for beginning clinical practice.
    BIOL 114 - Principles of Biology (3) - A basic biology course designed for the non-major. Topics include: molecules of life, cell
structure, respiration and photosynthesis, molecular genetics and gene technology, heredity and human genetics, population genetics
and evolution, diversity of life, and function of ecosystems. Course includes some applications of biological principles to agricultural,
medical, and environmental concerns.
    BIOL 346 - Human Anatomy (3) - Gross anatomy of the human body. Two lectures and one laboratory demonstration per week.
    English Composition (3 or 4) - Nursing students should register for ENGL 148 or 150 according to their placement information.
Students selected to participate in the SAGES program will enroll in USFS 100 - First Seminar.
Nursing students will make course selections in the following areas:
      1. Social Science or Arts and Humanities General Education Requirements
         All Nursing students must take one of PSCL 101, ANTH 102 or SOCI 112B. You should select one of these courses or make a
         selection from the Arts and Humanities or Global and Cultural Diversity categories.
      2. Physical Education activity course(s) or Varsity Sport

    Advanced Placement credit carrying exemption from particular courses may be used to replace those courses for purposes of Gen-
eral Education/Core curriculum, major, or minor requirements. Credit and exemption will be given only for AP examinations taken
prior to matriculation. Credit will be posted on a student’s record after the end of the first semester of enrollment, and therefore will not appear
on the first semester grade report. If, after matriculation at CWRU, a student completes a course for which s/he received credit/exemption
on the basis of AP, the AP credit/exemption for that course will be forfeited and will not count towards graduation requirements.
    On the Freshman Information Form (Form B), please note whether you have taken any of the College Board Advanced Place-
ment (AP) Examinations, and make arrangements for score reports to be sent to Case Western Reserve University. Generally, scores
are available in early July. If you took AP exams, please defer completion of your registration form until after you receive the
results, so that you can select courses at the appropriate level.
    *The policies regarding the awarding of credit for Advanced Placement Examinations of The College Board are reviewed annually by
departments and may be subject to change.

A maximum of seven AP Physics credit hours can be awarded. Students planning to major in Physics are strongly advised to take a CWRU mechanics
course (PHYS 121 or 123). *Physics C scores of 4 or 5 will lead to an invitation to take PHYS 123. Students who elect to take PHYS 123 forfeit the
AP credit. ***PHYS T100 offers 3 hours of physics general transfer credit, but no exact CWRU course equivalency.

     On the Freshman Information Form (Form B), please note whether you have taken International Baccalaureate Examinations, and
make arrangements for examination results to be sent as soon as possible to Assistant Dean Julie L. Amon at Case Western Reserve
University. Case Western Reserve University offers course credit for scores of 5, 6 and 7 for most Higher Level (HL) examinations.
Subsidiary Level (SL) is only accepted in the area of foreign language. Because examination results are usually not available until late
summer or early fall, you should plan your schedule on your own estimate of your results. If your actual scores turn out to be different,
adjustments can be made to your schedule after you arrive at the University. Credit earned through IB examinations will be posted by
the end of the first semester of enrollment.
     If you have taken an examination that is not listed below, please contact Dean Margaret Robinson, Office of Undergraduate Stud-
