As a Success Academy student, you will work with your academic advisors during your summer enrollment day to register for the following courses for your first semester:
- Critical Thinking and Problem Solving course (US 1010)
- English course (based on placement)
- Designated Success Academy General Education course
- Other courses as recommended by Academic Advisor
It is important to share all transfer, dual enrollment, and/or AP credits earned with an academic advisor to identify any exemptions to these courses.
Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
US 1010: Critical Thinking and Problem Solving for the Modern Day Student is a one-credit hour course that will enchance your potential for success in college and provide opportunity for academic and career exploration. Learn more about US 1010.
English Course (based on placement)
All UNO students must complete foundational writing courses. The English Placement and Proficiency Exam (EPPE) is required for undergraduate students to determine placement into the appropriate English course. New students should complete the EPPE prior to your enrollment day to ensure appropriate course placement.
Once you register for the exam in MavLINK, you can take it at anytime. It is web-based, which allows you to take it wherever you have access to internet and a computer where you can download the Respondus Lockdown Browser. If you'd like to take it on campus instead, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
Success Academy General Education Course
One benefit of the Success Academy is guaranteed enrollment in high demand general education classes. Students will receive a list of courses to choose from for their first semester when they meet with an advisor during your summer enrollment day.
At your Enrollment Day, your Academic Advisor will assist you in registering for additional classes based on your interests and program of study.
