Class Seminar Image

The Office of Supportive Services Freshman Seminar – UGS 101 – is a one credit university orientation course for program students. You will enroll in this seminar during your first year at MSU. This course is offered during the Fall & Spring Semesters.

Entitled PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT, LEADERSHIP ENGAGEMENT, AND ACADEMIC SUCCESS STRATEGIES, this interactive seminar is designed to build a foundation of knowledge for your college career as a learner and future leader. We’ll explore academic, social, personal, and career decisions that students face in college, with a focus on the first year.

The Office of Supportive Services staff members serve as your instructors. Each seminar instructor brings a unique and personal touch to the seminar section he/she offers. These are small recitation sections of approximately 25 students. Although the course is designed as a for-credit/no-credit (pass/fail) class, your presence during each section is required and extremely important to receive a passing grade. This one credit can be counted as an elective towards graduation requirements.
