As a requirement for graduation all full-time students in the undergraduate program, with less than senior standing (96 semester hours), must enroll in UCEN 101-01 for every semester of enrollment. Students who are 25 years of age or older and/or have dependents at the time of their enrollment are exempt from this requirement. Credit for UC ENGAGE is Pass/Fail with 0.50 academic credit hours available each semester. The grade received is factored into the student’s cumulative grade point average.

To receive a passing grade, students must attend six (6) UC ENGAGE designated events per semester.

The six (6) sessions include:

  • One (1) required event per semester.  In the fall semester, this is designated as the Opening Convocation.  In the spring semester, this is designated as the Forcht Leadership Event.  Students who fail to meet this requirement must meet one on one with Student Services to address any make up requirements. 

  • Five (5) self-selected session each semester.  The student will be able to select their sessions from a list of events designated as UC ENGAGE.   There are no longer any categories, all events on the list would be an option for student attendance.

    • Student Leadership Credit Option: Students holding an on-campus leadership role (club/organization officer, committee member, team captain, etc.) may substitute one (1) of their five (5) self-selected options for that leadership role.  Students must submit this request electronically and it must be verified by their faculty/staff sponsor or coach.
