USTU 1250 First-Year Studies:  The UTC Experience

In this course you will meet once a week with a group of about 25 UTC freshmen to learn about transitioning from high school to college. Although you may have been a successful high school student, we have learned from previous freshmen that college may offer more challenges than you expected. Be a part of a group where you can learn and talk about these challenges and experiences. This course is highly recommended to help you compete successfully during your first year of college.
