Transitions to the U.S. University Course
GBL 1205: Transition to the U.S. University for New International Students
(with New Student Experience (NSE) designation)
First semester on campus? Still looking for a class to add to your schedule?
New classes in an American university?
Poor study skills, like time management?
Using Baylor resources?
This 2-credit-hour course is for international students during their first semester at Baylor to successfully transition to Baylor and the academic community. Students can learn about the U.S. higher education system as well as a new culture (Baylor, Texas, U.S.).
Topics include academic expectations campus resources, and study strategies, and will provide an opportunity for students to practice their English language skills in an academic context. It’s also a great place to ask questions about other classes and campus events as well as meet other new international students!
