The University College at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) provides the foundational academic experience for students to explore what the university has to offer. All first-year-in-college-students participate in University College’s First-Year Experience Program (FYE), a program that helps new college students make connections academically and socially on campus. In UTSA's FYE Program students will (1) complete Academic Inquiry and Scholarship (AIS 1203), a course designed to introduce students to the general research and inquiry practices within three broad academic cultures as well as develop academic skills necessary to succeed beyond the first year in college; (2) participate in the University Peer Mentorship Experience (UPM 1000), an experience in which first-year-in-college students connect with a peer mentor to explore UTSA's academic and social resources, gain assistance in exploring major and career options, and learn college success strategies. The FYE program also offers students the opportunity to enroll in linked courses.
