University College for Academic Success (UCAS) is where all students will find support as they enter the university. All new students are enrolled in UCAS, regardless of major, until they matriculate to the academic college from which they will graduate. We provide academic advising to all majors, including a focus on those who are undecided about their major. We also provide support in the many aspects of undergraduate education that will help students to be successful, such as internships, career advising, service learning, study abroad and national student exchange, transfer resources and assistance with becoming better learners. We are here to support the journey from admission right through to graduation. We focus on getting the first years off to a great start with our freshmen seminars and orientation, early alert and mentoring programs, and continue this support through the undergraduate years, helping students to find the right majors and careers that will lead to success.
