First Year Experience (FYE) Classes

UNIV 101/103 

UNIV 101/UNIV 103 are two-credit seminar courses for first-semester freshmen students. UNIV offers a blended course format, team-taught by a faculty member and a professional staff member. The course includes two primary components, one focusing on an interesting academic topic, with the second component devoted to new student transition topics. The team teaching format and combined components allow opportunities for students to explore and discuss the specific academic and the transition topics, utilize campus resources, develop critical thinking and writing skills and improve time management. To find specific meeting times and locations, visit the schedule of classes website. NOTE: Students may not register for multiple sections of UNIV 101/103.
