All courses offered as part of the program will fulfill a UMBC requirement and carry at least 3 credits. All participants will enroll in either the Math, Writing, and/or General Education track (in some instances participants will be able to participate in two tracks). Our staff will utilize placement test results to determine which course is an appropriate fit for each student.

Every student participating in the program will participate in an Introduction to an Honors University (IHU) course during the fall semester to learn about the resources and requirements of attending an Honors University. Information about how to register for this course, as well as summer courses, will be provided at summer orientation.
