  • Q: How do I join the CLASSmates Program?
    A: All incoming freshmen with majors in CLASS are automatically approved members of the CLASSmates Program. During a New Student Orientation (NSO) session, you will meet with an academic advisor to discuss and plan your first semester schedule. Your academic advisor will activate your CLASSmates program membership by registering you for the sections of the core courses reserved exclusively for CLASSmates students.
  • Q: What are the benefits of joining the CLASSmates Program?

    A: Experience a smoother transition to college life
        Meet new friends
        Connect with faculty members
        Get assistance with major/career exploration
        Opportunity to participate in activities inside and outside of the classroom 

  • Q: What if I have AP/IB/Dual Enrollment credit for a course listed with The CLASSmates Program?

    A: Students who have already completed the required CLASSmates courses or who are members of certain UH programs may not be able to participate in the CLASSmates Program. CLASS is committed to student success; therefore, if you do not qualify for the program, your academic advisor will provide other programs and services to help you have a very successful academic experience.

  • Q: What else is required of CLASSmates students?

    A: You decide how involved you want to be in the CLASSmates Program. The only requirement is that you enroll in the courses reserved exclusively for CLASSmates members. Whether or not you take advantage of opportunities to meet other students, form study groups, participate in programs, attend special events and get to know a faculty member is up to you.
