University Core Curriculum

Please visit the University Core Curriculum (UCC) to view courses of interest to High School Dual Enrollment students.

  • The University Core Curriculum (UCC) is a broad, well-defined curriculum that helps students to think critically, analytically, and creatively. The UCC encourages a passion to learn, and provides them with the skills and ability to assemble, assess, incorporate, and synthesize new knowledge and information.
  • The UCC rests upon the belief that a foundational curriculum, shared by students, fosters intellectual development and enhances personal, social, intellectual, and academic relations. Together with concentration in major fields of study, the UCC builds the base that makes future academic and professional excellence possible.
  • FIU’s UCC requires courses in six fundamental areas of knowledge. Some of these requirements are sequential; others have pre-requisites.


Students must meet with their high school guidance counselor to select courses.
  • You must meet with your high school counselor to choose the courses you would like to register for (this must be done every semester you wish to take courses at FIU). Since registration for the courses is on a space-available basis, we recommend that you select alternate courses in the event your first two choices fill up. Do a class search prior to choosing the courses you wish to register for (Please note the FIU Spring 2019 Class Schedule will not be available until October 19, 2018).
