First-Year Experience

UTC is very interested in the success of students, particularly freshmen, who are transitioning from high school to college. To assist in this transition, the University offers USTU 1250,  First-Year Studies: The UTC Experience.  USTU 1250 serves as an introduction to the academic community and helps freshmen identify the nature and purpose of a college education, learn the expectations for academic success and importance of time management, and locate academic resources.  We also offer a FYRE (First-Year Reading Experience) program that helps students learn the expectations of college level academic performance.  To learn more about each program, follow one of the following links.
