University College has one of the most unique academic advising systems in the country. UC uses a Master Academic Plan (MAP) approach, led by experienced advisors who are also certified life coaches. When students encounter roadblocks to their success, a personalized “game plan” is implemented to address the issues that are slowing down the student’s progress.
