Join the Transitions Learning Communities


The Transitions Learning Community...

is designed for students transferring to the department and needing the second-year series of courses (Vertebrate Biology, Ecology, Statistics, etc.) and interested sophomores continuing their studies. The NREM Transitions Learning Community is open to NREM students regardless of where they choose to live. We meet once per week in a classroom setting and have optional field trips and community service projects outside of the class time. Students earn one credit for the successful completion of this program. There are two peers mentors who are available to assist students and help coordinate study groups for common classes.

The Goals...

of the learning community include developing your study skills, creating a strong sense of belonging within the department and the university, providing a positive social setting and improving your time management skills.

How do I sign up?

Sign up for the NREM Transitions Learning Community is done at the time of class registration. You may enroll for fall, spring, or both semesters.
