About University College

The University College Learning Center 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.  It offers learning and living experiences for all first-time students regardless of their academic preparation when entering Central State. It is designed to assist students in developing positive relationships with faculty, staff, and other students that will foster a strong academic and co-curricular foundation at CSU and provides programs for students to learn the skills, habits, and dispositions they need to achieve academic success.
