Welcome University College
University College (UC) is a student-centered unit charged with providing the structure and support needed to enable all first-time freshmen and transfer students with fewer than 30 semester hours to successfully transition first into Central State, and then into the college of their declared major.
UC offers learning and living experiences for all first-time students regardless of their academic preparation when entering Central State. The unit is designed to assist students in developing positive relationships with faculty, staff, and other students and to provide programs that help students to learn the skills, habits, and dispositions they need to achieve academic success.
University College houses the Office of First Year Experience and Academic Success, which employs a comprehensive and integrative academic advising approach to ensure student success; the Learning Skills Center, which provides tutoring services for all students with primary responsibility to new incoming freshmen and transfers; and TRiO, Student Support Services (SSS), which provides a variety of academic, tutorial, and social development services to students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
