Freshman Studies Program

The Freshman Studies Program is designed to facilitate the entering freshman’s acclimation to the college experience. All entering freshmen or students with 20 hours or less are required to complete UWA 101  during their first semester of enrollment at UWA as part of the General Studies component. They are introduced to the campus and to many of the faculty and administrative staff and are shown what UWA offers them. Qualified personnel are available for personal counseling, and other forms of guidance.

A second aspect of the Freshman Studies Program is the provision of special courses designed to help students develop their abilities from the level of competence which they have as they enter college. Students who lack the necessary proficiency in specific areas are assigned to developmental courses in order to provide them with the extra help which they need before enrolling in regular college courses in those areas. At present, developmental courses are offered in the basic skills of reading, writing, and mathematics.
