2023-2024 Academic Catalog

Support Programs for Select Students

The University has planned academic support programs, subject to availability, for a limited number of students who may need additional support to be successful at the University of Dayton.

The Fully Integrated Resource, Support and Transition (FIRST) Program is offered to a limited number of students whose academic profile and experience suggest they will benefit from a structured transition to college. In accepting admission to the University, FIRST students sign a contract indicating their understanding of the expectations of the program. FIRST students are enrolled in a course during the fall and spring semester which is designed to engage students in discussion, activities, and mentorship that will enhance their learning and study skills. In addition, FIRST students are expected to attend learning support sessions offered for several courses during the first year.

Additional information regarding academic support is available through the Office of Learning Resources.
