Tracks

All courses offered as part of the program will fulfill a UMBC requirement and carry at least 3 credits. All participants will enroll in either the Math, Writing, and/or General Education track (in some instances participants will be able to participate in two). Our staff will utilize placement test results to determine which course is an appropriate fit for each student.

Every student participating in the program will participate in an Introduction to an Honors University (IHU) course during the fall 2020 semester to learn about the resources and requirements of attending an Honors University. Information about how to register for this course will be provided at summer orientation.

All courses offered are limited to 25-40 students, ensuring that each student will have a friendly, supportive environment where they feel comfortable asking questions, exploring ideas, and challenging perceptions of college life and coursework. Best of all – each student will receive one-on-one time with the professors who are carefully chosen because of their abilities to work with new students.
