MAP-Works

MAP-Works is an amazing tool that helps first year students succeed at UCA.  All freshmen that live on campus have an account set up with their UCA e-mail.

How can MAP-Works help you succeed at UCA?

Task List

The task list feature is an organizational tool.  Since college freshmen will need to further develop their time management skills to adjust to college life, MAP-works has provided this tool to help organize and remind students of their to-do list.  Tasks can be completed or deleted, and have a due date function as well.

Campus Resources

UCA has an abundance of resources available to help students in all aspects of their college career.  Because there are so many, students sometimes are unaware of what all is available to them.  In the campus resource portion of MAP-Works, these resources are organized and available with no research or searching needed.  They are organized in alphabetical order by department name, and include a brief description of the department, a phone number, e-mail, link to website, and their physical location.

Survey Component

There are periodic surveys offered by MAP-Works that assess your college experience thus far. When completed, MAP-Works will generate a personalized report that highlights your strengths and challenges, and provides specific suggestions and campus resources to help address the challenges.

How do I log in?

MyUCA

Log into your MyUCA.  Select the “MyUCA” tab and find the MAP-Works channel on the bottom right of the page.  Select “Student Access to MAP-Works.”

Facebook

Log in to Facebook, and then search the app center for MAP-Works.  Once found, click on the link that says “get access code.”  Again, use the UCA e-mail.  An e-mail will be sent to that address with an access code.  Copy and paste that into Facebook.  Then there will be a link to your MAP-Works account.  From then on, just sign into Facebook, and the app will be on the left hand side.  Click on that, and there will be a link to your MAP-Works account, so you will not need to remember any log in information.

There’s an app for that!

There is a free app for MAP-Works app that you can download that will allow you to access the task list, campus resources, and take the survey from your  smart phone.  The first time you log into the app, you will need to get a verification code by logging in using one of the other methods and clicking the “I-phone” or “Android” link on the left hand side.

Website log in

Visit: uca.map-works.com When prompted for an e-mail address, the UCA e-mail must be used (for example, ucafreshman@cub.uca.edu – make sure the cub is included!).  An e-mail will then be sent to that e-mail with a secure link to MAP-Works.
