College Of Engineering Learning Communities
ATTENTION

Students entering First-Year Engineering are required to complete online tasks prior to registering for fall classes; you will receive directions for completing the tasks from First-Year Engineering. Some of the information from these tasks is used for initial math placement. Performance on an online math assessment may impact a student's eligibility for other courses which may be part of a learning community. You should apply for the learning communities that interest you and discuss learning community placement with an advisor during STAR, the summer orientation and registration program.
