[1] University College Courses (UNIV)

0331 PROGRESSIVE MATHEMATICS I This course is designed to prepare students for general education math courses. Students will be guided through math modules in a computer classroom. Students wishing to take Quantitative Literacy, MATH 1360, will need to complete through Module 10. Students wishing to take College Algebra, MATH 1390, will need to complete through Module 15. Completing the UNIV 0331-0333 sequence will satisfy the requirements for UNIV 1330 and UNIV 1340. Students who successfully complete the module sequence will receive a grade of A and may proceed into their general education math course. Students receiving a grade of S, Satisfactory, will be enrolled in UNIV 0332, Progressive Mathematics II the following semester. Students receiving a grade of U, Unsatisfactory, will be required to repeat UNIV 0331 the following semester. Fall, spring, summer.

0332 PROGRESSIVE MATHEMATICS II This course is a continuation of Progressive Mathematics I. The course is designed to prepare students for general education math courses. Students will be guided through math modules in a computer classroom. UNIV 0332 is required for students who earned a grade of S in Progressive Mathematics I and did not complete at least 10 modules. Completing the UNIV 0331-0333 sequence will satisfy the requirements for UNIV 1330 and UNIV 1340. Students who successfully complete the module sequence will receive a grade of A and may proceed into their general education math course. Students receiving a grade of S, Satisfactory, will be required to take UNIV 0333 the following semester. Students receiving a grade of U, Unsatisfactory, will be required to repeat UNIV 0332 the following semester. Prerequisite UNIV 0331. Fall, spring, summer.

0333 PROGRESSIVE MATHEMATICS III This course is a continuation of Progressive Mathematics II. The course is designed to prepare students for general education math courses. Students will be guided through math modules in a computer classroom. UNIV 0333 is required for students who earned a grade of S in Progressive Mathematics II and did not complete at least 10 modules. Completing the UNIV 0331-0333 sequence will satisfy the requirements for UNIV 1330 and UNIV 1340. Students who successfully complete the module sequence will receive a grade of A and may proceed into their general education math course. Students who do not complete at least 10 modules will be suspended from UCA. Prerequisite: UNIV 0332. Fall, spring, summer.

0350 FOUNDATIONS OF QUANTITATIVE LITERACY This course is designed to be taught in conjunction with Math 1360: Quantitative Literacy to students with ACT Math subscore equal to 18 or the equivalent. Students must be enrolled in MATH 1360 to take UNIV 0350. Students will learn and review basic mathematical concepts needed to succeed in Quantitative Literacy. Concepts covered will include solving linear equations, percents and decimals, and using a graphing calculator. Prerequisite: ACT Math subscore of 18.  Fall, spring.

0361 FUNDAMENTALS OF COLLEGE LITERACY:  READING, REASONING, AND WRITING  An introduction to the strategies needed in college-level reading and writing. Entering students with an ACT subscore below 19 (or equivalent placement score) in Reading or an ACT subscore below 16 (or equivalent) in English are required to register for this course during their first enrollment period and during each subsequent enrollment period until they earn a course grade of "C" or higher. The grade in this course will not be used to compute semester and cumulative grade point averages. The course does not count toward any degree. Offered in Fall, Spring, and Summer.

1100 UNIVERSITY STUDIES This course is designed to aid students in being successful at a collegiate level as well as in their personal lives. There are two primary goals: (1) Empower students to become successful learners at the collegiate level. (2) Empower students to develop a realistic sense of themselves as healthy citizens in a university, professional, public and global community. Requirements: This course is required for all University College students regardless of ACT score during their first enrollment period and during each subsequent enrollment period until they earn a course grade of C or higher. This course is also required for any UCA student who is enrolled in a transitional reading and/or writing course and must be completed with a C grade or higher. The grade in this course will not be used to compute semester and cumulative grade point averages. The course does not count toward any degree. Fall, Spring, Summer.

1300 TRANSITIONAL WRITING An introduction to the skills needed in college-level writing. Entering students with an ACT score below 19 in English are required to register for this course during their first enrollment period and during each subsequent enrollment period until they earn a course grade of C or higher. The grade in this course will not be used to compute semester and cumulative grade point averages. The course does not count toward any degree. Fall, Spring.

1301 TRANSITIONAL READING An introduction to the strategies needed in college-level reading. Entering students with an ACT score below 19 in Reading are required to register for this course during their first enrollment period and during each subsequent enrollment period until they earn a course grade of C or higher. The grade in this course will be used to compute semester and cumulative grade point averages for purposes of academic progress verification, but the course does not provide credit toward any degree.

1330 BEGINNING ALGEBRA This course introduces students to fundamental algebraic concepts in preparation for Intermediate Algebra. Concepts covered include word problems, fractions, graphing, linear equations and inequalities, factoring, operations with real numbers, and polynomials. Lecture and activity based instruction. Entering students with an ACT score below 19 in Math are required to register for this course or UNIV 1340 Intermediate Algebra during their first enrollment period.  Once enrolled, students must enroll in UNIV 1330 during each subsequent enrollment period until they earn a course grade of C or higher, after which they must enroll in UNIV 1340 the following semester. Students enrolling in this course may have only three total attempts between this course and UNIV 1340 to complete their remediation requirements in Math. The grade in this course will not  be used to compute semester and cumulative grade point averages. The course does not count toward any degree. Fall, Spring, Summer.

1340 INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA This course introduces students to fundamental processes: functions, graphing, linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations, factoring, operations with real numbers, polynomials, rational expressions, and radicals. Lecture and activity based instruction. Entering students with an ACT score below 19 in Math are required to register for this course or a UNIV 1330 Beginning Algebra course during their first enrollment period and must enroll in UNIV 1340 during each subsequent enrollment period until they earn a course grade of C or higher. Students may have only three total attempts to complete their remediation requirements in Math. The grade in this course will not be used to compute semester and cumulative grade point averages.  The course does not count toward any degree. Fall, Spring, Summer.
