UCORE Advising Resources

A Scaffolded Structure

UCORE’s structure is intentionally designed to build capacity and develop skills over time. Most UCORE designations are offered at multiple levels (i.e. 100-400).

Advise students to complete UCORE with the following guidelines in mind:

  • Complete First-Year Experience [ROOT] and Foundational Competencies [QUAN, WRTG, COMM] in their first year.
  • Complete 6 of 7 Inquiry: Ways of Knowing designations: ARTS, BSCI, DIVR, EQJS, HUM, PSCI, SSCI] in first through third years at course levels appropriate to class standing (e.g. second-year students take 200-level course with [ARTS] designation to fulfill Inquiry in the Creative and Professional Arts). Note that CAS and CVM students complete 7 of 7 Inquiry: Ways of Knowing as part of additional college graduation requirement.
  • Complete Integrative Capstone [CAPS] in fourth year.
