University 101

The transition from high school to college can be tough. We make it easier with our University 101 program. 

A Program to Look For

University 101 was developed at USC Columbia in 1972 and adopted by our campus in the 1980s. It's consistently ranking in the top "program to look for" by the US News and World Report. Why? When you register for University 101, you'll find yourself in a smaller campus environment that will give you built-in support systems to create paths toward personal and academic success. You'll discover dynamic and interactive classrooms, hear outside speakers and have a rewarding experience. 

 

Choosing a UNIV 101 Course

When you enroll, you can choose between a general section or a major-specific section, like business, health professions or nursing. Some Columbia campus majors require a major-specific course, so be sure to talk to your advisor. We also have sections for non-traditional students and students in the TRiO program.
