Early Start Seminar


Early Start Seminar

The Early Start Seminar will emphasize the skills that will help students achieve and prepare for academic and personal success throughout their years here at UCR. This is an interactive class that is geared to help students be successful in their college career.

The seminar has two main components:

1. To help incoming freshmen understand how to be successful in college, which most students find is different and more challenging than being successful in high school. 

2. To introduce students to UCR and the expectations of a major research institution. 

The academic & personal skills that will be discussed include:

  • Time management
  • Financial Aid & Budgeting
  • Test preparation
  • Critical thinking
  • Reading & Note-taking 
  • Communication & Diversity
  • Goal Setting & Motivation

The seminar will take campus tours which include:

  • The Humanities and Science Libraries
  • The WELLness Center
