The Transfer FYS course is for all transfer students who enter UW with fewer than 30 credit hours post high school. This course meets a USP general education requirement. The Academic Success Skills course is geared toward helping transfer students enhance their academic standing and potential.

STEP 1101 - Transfer FYS: Transitions through Life

This seminar is intended for transfer students with fewer than 30 credit hours. We will explore major life transitions (e.g. childhood to adolescence, high school to college, school to work, career to retirement, etc.) and discuss how learning from prior experiences and anticipating future changes is essential to adult success. We will also work to understand how current college experiences affect personal decision making, goal setting, and motivation in a variety of contexts.

STEP 1105 - Academic Success Skills

This course is designed to help transfer students evaluate their own abilities and decision-making skills, relative to achieving academic success. Topics include: your identity as a transfer student, choices successful students make, study skills and strategies, self-awareness, academic self-efficacy, and personality, values, interests, and skills. This course will help you examine your behaviors and beliefs and implement new approaches to support your academics and future career.
