Incoming Freshmen

All incoming first-time freshmen enrolling in The University of Texas at Dallas must complete and pass (UNIV 1010), Freshman Seminar, during their first semester in attendance. UNIV 1010 is a graduation requirement for all first-time freshmen. This course is designed to introduce incoming freshmen to the intellectual and cultural environment of the university and the impacts it will have on their lives as students. The course incorporates presentations by leading UT Dallas faculty members on research developments of major current interest, small section meetings to discuss these presentations and matters of general concern to UT Dallas freshmen, and a substantial component of on-line learning focused on developing the strategies and tactics that will lead to successful careers at UT Dallas and beyond. ENGR 1200 may be substituted for UNIV 1010, provided students attend the large faculty lectures and complete the on-line learning focused on developing the strategies and tactics that will lead to successful careers at UT Dallas and beyond.
