What is MAP-Works?

Welcome to MAP-Works!

Whether you are a first-year student new to college or a transfer student new to the university, your first semester here is critical. Beginning your MAP-Works experience is just one of many smart steps you can take to achieve success.

What's the MAP-Works Process?

MAP-Works begins with an online assessment you complete during the 4th and 5th weeks of the semester. For 2014-2015 academic year, this is September 15-29 in the fall and February 2-16 in the spring. For extensive information about the program, check out the Frequently Asked Questions or review the program's infographic.
