The Compass Learning Community helps incoming first-year students succeed who would like additional academic assistance. We will select approximately 48 qualified first-year students to participate in this community. Participants will be provided with an incredible opportunity to tap into some of UCO's best faculty and tutoring resources. Students take five classes together during the academic year, live on the same residential floor, and receive supplemental tutoring and instruction. Each learning community has a Peer Mentor, an upper class student, who resides in the hall, serves as a role model and mentors students throughout the first year.

Compass community members will move-in before classes start and begin the Compass Academic Success Camp to prepare them for success in the classroom and with the transition to campus. For two weeks students will undergo intensive classroom instruction to building reading, writing and keyboarding skills. Additionally students will begin their Success Central course before the Fall semester begins. Team building and goal setting activities will help students identify their strengths and individualized plan for success.Students take co-enrolled courses in the Fall and Spring semesters their first year.
