UNIV 060. Supplemental Instruction (1)
Supplemental Instruction is an academic assistance program designed to help students master difficult course material in historically challenging classes. Students participate in a series of weekly peer-facilitated small group study sessions that focus on learning strategies and problem solving skills specific to the corresponding lecture course. Students enroll in University 60 for one-unit, non-baccalaureate credit.

This course introduces first-time freshmen to the university as an institution, a culture, and an intellectual experience. Academic success is the central goal of the course. Topics include academic skills (writing, reading, note-taking, test-taking, and information competence, as well as critical, analytic, and creative thinking); the value of higher education; the history and culture of CSUN; lifelong learning; the discourse of higher education; ethics and responsibility; diversity in higher education; advisement; health; and self-assessment. Weekly writing assignments; frequent in-class exercises; some on-campus field trips. (Available for General Education, Lifelong Learning) (IC)
