UNIV100: Introduction to Mason

Students working together in a group
Students in UNIV 100 can look forward to an engaging learning experience in a wonderful community of like-minded students this fall! If your student has not yet registered for UNIV 100, there are still a limited number of spots available. See to search available sections and register.

UNIV 100 is a discussion-based, one-credit course specifically designed for first-year students to make for a smooth transition to the Mason community. These classes are co-taught by a faculty member and an upperclass Peer Advisor (PA), and only enroll about 20 students each, allowing students to build a strong network with their fellow classmates. The Center for Academic Advising, Retention, and Transitions also offers a variety of UNIV courses and programs at the 100-400 levels. These include courses with a special focus on freshman/transfer transition, academic success, peer leadership, career education, and research and scholarly activities. There are plenty of options for your student to enroll in a course throughout their time at Mason.
