Welcome to University College at Arizona State University. We are committed to advancing academic excellence and the impact of a university education through a dedicated focus on individual undergraduate students. We work directly with all the other colleges, schools, departments and programs to help students succeed at ASU. The goals of University College are to:

  • Support students with academic success courses, tutoring, adaptive learning strategies and individualized learning plans.
  • Enhance support university-wide for students in transition.
  • Provide full access to all ASU campus resources.
  • Improve student retention and graduation rates.
