**0310 FOUNDATIONS OF COLLEGE 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.

**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.

**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.

**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.

**0360 FOUNDATIONS OF QUANTITATIVE LITERACY** Students must be enrolled in MATH 1360 (Quantitative Literacy) to enroll in UNIV 0360. 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. This course is required for students with an ACT Mathematics sub-score of 18 or below (or the equivalent) while enrolled in MATH 1360. 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.

**0370 FOUNDATIONS OF COLLEGE LITERACY** An introduction to the strategies needed in college-level reading and writing. Entering students with an ACT sub-score below 19 (or equivalent placement score) in Reading or an ACT sub-score 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.

**0390 FOUNDATIONS OF COLLEGE ALGEBRA** Students must be enrolled in MATH 1390 (College Algebra) to enroll in UNIV 0390. Students will learn and review basic mathematical concepts needed to succeed in College Algebra. Concepts covered will include graphing, functions, linear equations and inequalities, quadratic equations, operations with real numbers, polynomials, rational functions, and radical functions. The use of a graphing calculator will be required throughout the course for computations and graphing. This course is open to any student while enrolled in MATH 1390 but required for students with ACT Mathematics subscore of 18 and below or the equivalent.

**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. 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.

**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 not be used to compute semester and cumulative grade point averages. The course does not count 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.

**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.
