Frequently Asked Questions

How many course am I required to take during the summer?

  • Students will complete two courses during the summer program. Many students take a mathematics course, depending on availability and placement scores. If not enrolled in a math course the student will be enrolled in another course that also counts toward university core, graduation, and possible major requirements. Students will work with their academic advisor to register for courses.

What is the College Writing Seminar?

  • STEP students will also take a mandatory college writing seminar. This class is a crucial bridge between high school and college-level writing. It is a supplement to the two-course College Writing sequence that all incoming freshmen students at AU must take in order to meet the university writing requirements.
