CAS 101/103 for Transfer Students

Enrolling in CAS 101/103

CAS 101/103 benefits for transfer students:

  • provides an easy and effective way to learn your way around campus
  • refreshes your college-level student skills and teaches you about academic advisement
  • guides you as a student in the College of Arts & Sciences and helps you plan your future

The majority of transfer students who have completed CAS 101 or 103 found it useful, particularly students whose goals include the desire to become highly educated. If you feel you can benefit from any of our CAS 101/103 objectives, you are welcome to enroll.

  • Fall enrollment: Contact the Director of Transition Courses.
  • Spring enrollment is open for students to self-enroll.
