Can I take more than one FYE 109 class?

Unfortunately, students can only take one FYE 109 class and only during their first year at NEIU.

Do the FYE and FYE 109 classes cost any extra?

No. Access to FYE events is free and, since the FYE 109 classes are part of the regular curriculum, they are part of your normal costs.
