Like all my words and my voice on your phone right?
Now you're gonna listen to it later.
the most friendly, right way.
Alright, so that's yours. I think everybody's here. We're only missing one fellow, Mr. Vincent, but because he's not here, he's probably going to fail. And if he doesn't fail, because me, he probably is just a loser, and it's never gonna make it anyway. He got
to kind of come to pass.
Yeah. So. So this is Leslie, I've introduced you. I've talked about who you are. And I told him what you're doing. And unlike Russell, you know, I'm much more focused on some thinking processes for the first couple of weeks. He has
told us you Dead Poets Society meets college success.
So they might write and tell me right, I have a glimpse of what this process is. But they know the
They know. Yeah, they know the basic function. And tomorrow we'll talk more in detail about how they executed but they know what your kind of here's
my question I have for you. Because Glenn has learned a certain way to you and her The classes are you doing all four years? Are you just doing the two? No, just the two. Okay. She's doing it all for years. And I was like, Okay.
I mean, it's nice to plan out, but it's not necessary.
Okay. Hi, guys. Um, okay. So like I said, I'm Leslie Craig wall. I'm an advisor at pulse A, B, but I'm also I also teach this class as well. Unfortunately, teach with him, but it's cool. So anyway, we I currently teach the 1000 class right now at the hard Valley campus. So it is a little different when you come in in the fall versus summer. This is I think, the last summer this has been taught. So I used to teach the 1500. And then now I'm doing 1000. So anyway, so that's kind of my background. I used to I went to grad school here undergrad, obviously with Ryan at Carson Newman. And then I worked at Austin Peay, and I've worked here as well. So my husband works here right now. So college communication, that's a really big spider and someone needs to kill it.
Who went up in there?
Okay, that's gross. Okay. Anyway, my husband works ever in college communications and the research centre. So if you're ever anybody a major in communications at all, okay, well, look at Jessica, well, he's great. It's pretty cute. And I'm going to see him after this have a hot lunch date. So anyway, what we're going to talk about today is a project that you're doing in this class. I think, personally, it's one of the most useful things you'll do in this class, because you actually get to plan out your time it helps it be be very strategic, but also playing out time here. So it's kind of a nice, we're going to teach you how to do that on your own, so that you don't need us to actually plan it out. We want you to take ownership of your classes. But also, my disclaimer is always have an advisor check every semester, just to make sure it's right before you do anything. So I'm going to give you just a little bit of a background of publicity. So I know we're at UT, but you guys are posed to be students for the next year. So what I want to do is give you a background of what PLC offers, what your options are. We have had students in the past who've started bridge and they end up staying. So it's always good to know exactly what your options are. If you decide to stay impulsively, and not come here after the year.
Yes, sir. I mentioned that already this morning. But in your experience in the last five years, whatever. How many of those students didn't succeed in terms of coming back to UT? Do you see what's matriculation? Or do you see like 90% of them?
Oh, yeah. Yeah, most of them shall be recorded saying this.
Have to be professional.
I have the students that stay always do really well. They just do, we are the biggest feeder school in here. So when they leave here, and they leave possibly with a degree and they jump in as a junior, they're always ready to go. So it really a year here is great. Obviously, cost wise, it helps a lot. But you're still paying for stuff here to with bridge. But it I mean, it can set you up for a lot, a lot of a lot of the students to do that do way better here, because they've had two years to get used to college and get an easier and make sure they have all their core stuff with a little bit extra help with resources, and then they come in here as a junior ready to go. So I step to you wonder a lot of students might see that as a failure. Oh, no.
In my experience with the students I've had, I've seen a lot of them
do just fine,
they are extremely successful here. If you can, you know college GPA is different than high school, it's just different. So you're getting a 2.5 or 3.0, maybe in high school wasn't as great because the way to grades and all that kind of stuff. But in college 3.0, it's great. You're doing you're doing really well you're doing you're you're mastering your classes, and you're at a B average. So it's totally different in undergrad than it is high school. So don't count it out. That's just me being a passive employee. I love it there. But just make sure that you do your research before you decide which way you're going to go, my students still bridge over fine. But it is a big change. When you come here versus policy, your classes are going to be small, you're gonna have a lot of help the first year and then you're going to come here and have really big classes and not as much help and you're pretty much on your own. So it is something to consider, especially if you've already done a year. And then based on where you are in your classes, if there's sequences that you need to finish or whatever, it's really smart to finish those opposed to be before you come here, and they actually prefer it things like biology or your histories because it's the curriculum flows at fellowship together with the two classes versus taking one there and one here. So something to think about. Okay, so let's talk about what an actual degree would look like it posed to be state, okay. This would be a universal for the state of Tennessee. So if you were to go to another school, these are things you would need to obtain in order to get an associate's. Okay. There are some advantages to getting an associate's degree, some of those would be, actually, if you decide to go anywhere else, things just transfer in a lot easier. When you have a degree to show for it, it means you met, the requirements you met, the GPA is all that good stuff. And then also, if it's not the exact history, they want you to take or something like that. Sometimes they waive that because you have the degree. So also, there's scholarships that go with that here. There are transfer scholarships that can come once you have at least a three, I think a three to five and up, they give transfer scholarships, so they give extra money on top of hope. And it's actually really nice. And this is really the only scholarships you get as a transfer student. Okay. You have to have the degree, and then the GPA as well. So
no, you're fine. I'm used to it.
After let's say students eyes, Oh, you know what?
I don't want to pay bills at me. Screw it. I'm gonna it's a person. I'm gonna use the free tuition bills. Uh huh. I'm gonna stay there two years, I get the associates, which is a two year degree. And I have a three to five year saying that I can turn come back to UT. And that's that way I will actually get potentially get scholarship funding. Yep.
Yep, there's advantages. Yeah. So the only time they if you don't come in as a freshman, getting scholarships, on top of hope or anything else is really hard to do. So if you want transfer scholarships, if you get a certain GPA, three to five and higher, you're guaranteed money on top of hope and all those other things, but you have to have the degree. So that's just one of their advantage just to give to our students that graduate. Okay, so Associate of Science, associative arts, does anyone know the difference between the two?
What do you think is the difference? There's only one difference?
So might take a guess? No.
You have a guess.
Okay, that's what you would think. Okay, but it's deceptive. So the only difference between the two degrees is if you complete intermediate language or not. That's it. Okay. So if you come here with an associated March, you've completed intermediate Spanish or intermediate French or German at pill, sippy. Or if you don't take any language, you just have an associate of science. So that's it. That's the only difference. So we now have the requirement, obviously, this class to graduate from Tulsa Be it comes into UT is first year studies. So it does come in as college level class, it does help your GPA, it's great. So this is something that is mandated by the state. Then we have communication, you've got to complete English comp, one to speech, you've also got to do a literature with two humanities humanities or things like music appreciation, intro to theatre, art, history, philosophy, his favourite topic. So NM, are y'all doing critical thinking to Is that right? Okay. So that would be a humanities that philosophy here. It's a quantitative reasoning. So it's different. It just depends on the school, okay, depending on the degree as well. Also, Social Sciences, Psychology, Sociology, political science, things like that would be your social sciences, economics, if you're doing business, those would be your social sciences. History here, you have to take Western or world Civ, they don't want us history, unless you didn't go to a US High School. Natural Sciences, you have to have to with the lab, that's why it's eight hours instead of six. So they want you to complete two Life Sciences. And then the math it says, three hours, that's one class is really deceptive as well, because it depends on your major. And typically, most majors here at UT require to maths critical thinking counts as one. So that's great for you guys. But if you are going into business or engineering, or some of these others, like biology that have a higher level of math, you'll still be taking a math every semester. Yes, ma'am.
What kind of what, which one specifically, are you taking?
Are you taking just a lab? Are you taking the lab in the lecture? Yeah, I mean, that would keep that would that would be on your transcript and keep going to so that would work. I mean, you're just knocking it out earlier. Okay. Okay. So that would be your general education requirements. So the some of you have you ever heard someone say, I'm gonna go to Pell city and get my kids done? common phrase, okay. It's a myth. You can't just do your genetics and get a degree, you still gotta do electives. What do you think defines your elective hours?
Do you think? What would define what you take?
Yeah, Major. So whatever you pick is your major would determine what those elective hours need to be. Some of those elective hours might be language, some of those might be extra math, okay, just depends on what you're doing. So that would equal an associate's degree 61 to 63 hours because of the college success class, depending on if you take the 1000 or this one. Okay, so for you guys would be 63 hours.
Any questions on that so far? Okay.
Now, bridging for you guys. What we've done over the years, because we are the biggest feeder school in TUT, we have taken whatever major you guys pick, and we have transcribed them into a degree. Okay, so our course numbers are different. But we know what equals what UT has. Okay, so, for bridge, you guys have a specific list of classes to us that you are allowed to take while you're here with us. We make sure you stay on that list, you stay in your lane ready to go to UT with only things that would transfer here. So that's what happens the first year for you guys. So what are some examples of things you guys are taking this fall? English comp one. Okay, what else? psychology all those come over. Yes. Go ahead. What else? Somebody else? Were you taking? Math? Okay. Okay, and what math Are you taking? Do you remember? Okay, Joe studies math. Okay, Spanish. Okay. All of these things transfer here. Okay. So our job as advisors at UT, is to make sure you're in the classes that will transfer and easily here, and they will have no problem. Are there some classes that are school that don't transfer in the are there some that you might have to take? Possibly, but we will make sure that we are very clear with you of which one of your classes will will count as your 30? Okay, yes, ma'am.
I don't know they're working on to the state. That's a tricky issue, because the state is working on approving that as a foreign language. So that's been in process. And sometimes schools will take it as a foreign language. And sometimes they won't. And so at Pell sippy, they're starting to count that as a foreign language. I know they do accept the classes here, it might just be elective hours for you, until they would count it as a foreign language here. But that is something they're in talks with. So maybe by the time you get here, they count that I don't know. But it is a topic of conversation. And it does count as elective hours. Okay, which still count towards your 30. The only things that are not going to count towards your 30 hours here are going to be any remediated classes that you take the remediated hours portion, not actual college level that counts. And then math 1030 does not transfer here. Because it's considered kind of a high school math getting you up to a level to be able to take college algebra, which college algebra does count here, just not as a math requirement. It's just an elective hour here. So it does count. Okay, so that's what our job is, is to look what UT wants for your major and make sure we get you the right course numbers that transfer over into a degree for us, what we do is we try to set you up to where if you wanted to stay, you can, and you can finish out a degree, or you can come here and you can do either one. Okay, so that's usually what it does. But you're supposed to come here, or come to Pell city get 30 transferable hours, that's the key transferable hours. So if you're taking, that's why some of you guys are taking these in the summer, so you might have remediation, and one of the topics of English or math, and then this will help make up for those hours that you would lose with remediation. So it keeps you on track to your 30.
Okay, now for distinction, mature manners, yes, you understand there's a difference between transferable hours and required hours. So what that means is, is like, on the one hand requirements, what she's saying is you got to meet these requirements, these classes might be transferable, but they may not meet these requirements. Right. So what she's saying in relation Americans question is, you can take ASL, it'll transfer over to UT, but it might not fulfil a certain requirement over here, it may, it may fulfil an elective requirement, it may not fill a language report. So while you can take and it is transferable, and it's gonna allow you to get a UT, you may have to take an extra thing over here at UT in order to fulfil that requirement. Does that make sense? So it's the same way with like a menu, you have a certain nutritional requirement, and you have to eat these things and fulfil your nutritional requirements. You can have extra stuff on the side, that's fine, you'll get more calories, but they need to meet these nutritional requirements. Does that make sense? Everybody? So those are two different pieces. That's a confusion a lot of students it is I think watching these classes they transferred over, but I'm still having to take more stuff at UT. And they blame publicity. Right? So it's not actually calls to be small. It's that you were taking classes that didn't quite fit over here, even though UT said, Yeah, we'll take them will say you can use them here. But you still have to do this other stuff. So the goal is to make these this as closely as possible to shrink your time and money. So he says, okay, okay.
So do y'all have any questions on this before I move forward at all?
All right. So reverse transfer, something we always want to introduce to you guys, when you are getting close to the end of your year at Helsinki, and you're deciding to go on to UT and actually bridge over, okay. Remember, you have to have a 2.5 and 30 hours, okay, and that's what they want. In order to meet that requirement, there is an option for you to do a reverse transfer after you've completed another year here or so your year and a half depending on what you need. But that chart that we saw on the other page to meet a degree, okay, if you meet all those requirements, even if some of those classes your next year is here, you can bridge back and actually get an associate's degree, which would make you eligible for what? scholarships. Okay, so when you come to UT, if you meet those requirements of comp, one come to speech literature, to social sciences, to natural sciences, to humanities, to histories, your math, all of those requirements as basic requirements. And it equals, you've got at least 63 hours because you've also got your first year studies class, okay, you can actually opt in to what they call bridge back, when you come here, you tell them I want to do the bridge back and get my associates after a year and they put you in a system. And once you complete all the requirements, they get grant you an associate's degree, it's pretty awesome. So you can at least get something to show for classes you did it helps to be also get the degree and be eligible for scholarships, which is kind of nice. Okay. So as long as you've got the GPA, you can potentially get some money. So it's definitely worth looking into. Okay, we do this all over the state. So if someone leaves policy and they go to another school, and they finish all the requirements, but they attended policy before they can reverse transfer, schools like Carson Newman, do it UTC all these different schools in the state,
okay, situation where student wouldn't do that.
And sometimes, like, first of all, they don't know about it.
they get into a situation where maybe they just don't meet all the requirements, like some degrees don't require literature sometimes or like little things, and then they wouldn't be qualified for it. So once they get into UT, they pick a track and that track doesn't reach back so it doesn't meet all the requirements, then we can't grant a degree if it doesn't meet our requirements, because ultimately has to be our requirements. We pretty basic, so most degrees do that. Okay, so some advising tips to give you guys from our office to you guys. Okay, we are different than your coaches. Okay, we are not the UT coaches, that is people that work here at UT Knoxville, we work at PLC only. And we are in charge of PLC classes, so they can't register you for your classes we do. Okay, they can give you advice, but we ultimately register you. Okay, so the things we want to make sure you guys know, you guys are required to meet with your policy advisor the entire time you're here every semester to do your classes, because we're the ones that register you. Okay, you if you try to register yourself, typically a student person is only required first semester. So second semester, if you guys tried to do your schedule for the spring, they actually put holes on your account to make sure you meet with us. Okay, so it's not something that they want you to get guys to do, because we have to be very specific and strategic to get your 30 hours. So they want to make sure that we check those over. Selfish biassing always put that on, there can be a disaster, if you choose your classes and you don't have someone check it, it can be a horrible, misguided thing that sets you back in almost an entire semester. Okay. So make sure that you always have us check over that. We always put down any students wanting to transfer to a four year school, ultimately, UT is your boss. And that's what your coaches can help you out with making sure that the things that we put you in for your classes, they can always double check what we put you in as well, and give you a confirmation that everything's good. But ultimately, I would challenge you guys to make sure you have a contact here in the department you want to be in, that's a big deal. If you want to do communication, go meet with somebody, a communication advisor, every college here has their own advising department, okay, Arts and Sciences has theirs. Engineering has their own agriculture has their own business has their own, okay, so make sure you make a contact here, that's a big deal. The more you can bring to your advising appointment information wise about you, the quicker it will be for us to make your schedule, if you come to us and say, I don't know what I'm going to be working or I don't know what time would work for me. Or you know, you have no clue and can't give us any guidance, or I still don't know what I want to major in. Or I don't know how many hours I want to take all these things are things you should think about before you come to see us so that we're not waiting on you to decide these things. It makes your appointment longer. Okay. So anything like that your work schedule, if you know what your work schedule is, hopefully it's flexible. Because once we make your schedule, we want to make sure that you can work around your school schedule. But just make sure you know all of those pieces of information before you come to see your advisor just helps us out. And then I'm being proactive about getting a schedule means coming in. As soon as we start, don't wait, you guys are very, you have specific things you need to take. So you don't want to wait, when we open October 23. For the spring, we don't want to see you guys December 15. Okay, because by then all these other current students have already registered for the spring, they've gotten a lot of availability, and then you guys are at a loss, you might have to just take things you might not want to take, because you didn't come in in time. So make sure you guys will be our most of you at division Street. Yes. Okay. So Stephanie is the main advisor there, Stephanie Baker harden, she is your huge contact there, she has done this programme for years, she can guide you through everything you need to take. So go in and see her and they're going to start pre planning at division Street, October 1. So where you can go in and meet with her, she can plan out your schedule ahead of time, you guys can go over the codes and everything for those classes. And then when it starts on the 23rd, you can do it at home and not have to come in and see here. So it's a big deal. Okay, so you can go ahead and choose it and get out and you won't have to wait in the long lines at division Street. Okay. Any questions on that so far? Okay. I'm just told you guys, those dates. So October 23, you might want to put an alert in your phone to remind you to go to advising, hey, that's something that would be very smart for you to do or take a picture of the screen. Okay, so you can remember
I put October 9 on there, but Stephanie is going to start October 1 at division Street. Okay, that's right after fall break for anybody that would be pardoned Valley will start on the night. So YouTube is usually the Friday, Thursday and Friday before ours. And ours is the Monday Tuesday after. So Ours is a seventh and eighth this year.
You don't get a week anymore. Sorry, guys.
Any melts me this good. Okay. Okay. So also, you might want to take a picture of that square right there. Stephanie Baker harden is your advisor to division Street. And that's her information, phone numbers, emails, everything. Okay. That's another thing to take a picture of Scott man is going to be your advisor, if you are at Hardin Valley, okay, he will make sure that you get all the right classes. So we've designated two people at each campus to make sure you guys get into the right classes, and there's no confusion on what you need. Okay. And then also, the navigate app is coming is going to be happening this fall. It's something you can get an app store. And it's a new initiative they're pushing on, you can schedule advising appointments through that, there's a lot of information you can get on your file, or on your admin stuff at the campus. So it's definitely worth looking up and finding that's the icon for it in the app store to make sure you got the right one. So definitely do that when you guys get a chance before the fall. Okay.
Great and fancy a pill sippy. Okay,
so let's move on to the actual assignment. Okay. So an academic plan at Pell city state is a way for you to make a personal list of classes that work for you based on your major based on your interest, and make sure sure that we complete all your requirements towards a four year degree here. Okay. So, obviously, you've got to use some critical thinking, which is where your professor will love to help you out on that. But that is the point of this project, we want to give you guys something that you can follow. It is fluid, it is changing all the time, based on what you take what's available. what your major is, it's something that changes, okay, but it adapts to you. So, the person next to you is not going to have the same one that you have. Okay, so make sure that you know that going in, because if you sit down and do this with it with a person next to you.
I'm gonna make sure those links are active. Oh, okay.
I'm the person next you might not have the same schedule as you and that's okay. That's completely normal.
what is the next slide? I can keep going?
After this one to
that one, okay. Okay.
So let's talk about what you would need to do this project. Okay. So what he's going to do is he's going to be giving you a form that you fill out and it's, it's broken into semesters. Okay, so your first semester would be summer 19. The two classes you're taking right now. Okay, so you would write down college 1500? philosophy? 1300 1300? With
Yeah, I don't know, critical thinking, is that what it is? Okay. So philosophy 1300, three hours each, that's a normal credit hour load for our class here philosophy,
then you would start your fall schedule, whatever you register for the fall, you put in Fall 19. Okay, so lyst your classes English calm. You said ASL. Whatever it is, you're going to write those down with the credit hours of each class. And that's how you started. Okay, so as advisors, we will help you out with the fall, obviously, that you registered for. And we will talk about I think Stephanie said she even helped with the spring a little bit just guiding you to make sure you take what you need to while you're here for bridge. But after that, you're going to plan another year. Okay. So the point of this project is for you to have the the cap of I'm a Pell City State student. Okay. I know, not everybody wants to do that bridge programme, but you are. The reality is you are a Pell City State student that's in a, an agreement with UT, but you still gotta meet requirements to get there. Okay. So what we want you to do is we want you to plan out your time, if you stayed at post up. Okay? That way, if you decide to do so you have a plan. But at the same time, all of those classes are the same classes that you teach. So you now have a plan for UT as well. Okay, so it works for both schools. And this is a form that was talking about. So you guys, you can even start here because there's a bunch of different ones, it's way longer than this. But you can start here with summer 19, if you want to, okay. And then make sure that you include because the classes you're taking right now transfer manager 30 hours, and you need that on the sheet. Okay. Um, but what we're doing is the goal is to fill this out with a plan, and you need some resources to do it. Okay. So beyond just this form, the next one you would need is a degree pathway. So that's something you guys need to pick out. And you need to pick it out from the UT majors lyst. Okay, so if you go to the UT web page, A to Z index, undergraduate catalogue, there's a link on the right side that says majors A to Z. Okay, you can click on it, and then you click on whatever major you're interested in doing. If you are still undecided. Anybody undecided in here? Okay, that's well,
there's so much I could say.
Totally fine. Just pick one for the project. Okay. Something that you're interested in that you've kind of been thinking about. Okay, so this is not set in stone. This is not you picking your classes for the spring? This is you taking a major and trying to figure out what's my order of what I would do here? What would I personally do best to do it? Yes, ma'am. Okay. Yes, whatever, you're going to use it up or here, obviously. Use it. Okay. Yes. Yes, you should be able to Yeah, they used to give you guys the option, I think of taking him at a community colleges and the other in the state, like if you're at home or something, but I think they're making them be at Pell city as well. Yes.
So I don't understand why you would change in October. Does that just mean you already have the classes designated for the fall and you want to shift for the spring? Is that what that means? Like you already have your classes selected for the fall? Yeah. And then you're saying when you go to October advisor, you want to go ahead and shift to the different ones for spring?
Is it too late for her to change now? Now? What do you mean? Like what are you changing from?
Okay, so you probably need to go see Stephanie and change your schedule with fall because they're very different classes.
like regular like
Africa last, let me look at your schedule, make sure it's okay. I'll tell you if you need to give me a Stephanie or
Because those are very different. So, yeah, no, you're right. You're actually right. Oh, that's record. That's fancy.
Okay, so. So you have to pick out a degree pathway. Okay, then you need our catalogue to know how the order of these classes need to be taken in. Okay, if there's any prerequisites, which would mean what, what do you think? prerequisite? What would that mean? before? Yes, okay. Were they I have a co requisite which means a recommend you take them together. Okay. So that's where you find out and our catalogue. It also tells you in our catalogue, if it transfers here or not, there's this awesome just star on it. And if it has the star it transfers here, okay? And things like that you can check your catalogue at whatever school you're at is your best friend. Okay? You will use your catalogue here. Once you're here. Why do you think a catalogue is important? What do you think?
You'd have a guess.
Okay, so it's a guide for your classes, LLC, or here. But there's some very, very important things for you to know about a catalogue, people aimlessly looking at a catalogue every year and updating it putting it online, it's, there's a purpose behind it, okay, it's a lot of words. The main purpose behind your catalogue is that when you come into a college like for you guys, at Tulsa, P, you are on the 1920 catalogue year. And our books you have seven years to complete six or seven, six or seven years, I can't remember what year it is exactly, but you have six or seven years to complete the requirements on that catalogue here. Okay, if something happened, life happens, you have to take a break from college, you have to come back later. Okay. And let's say it's four years later, and you start back, this happens all the time, okay? We are bound to provide you the class the classes from the 1920 catalogue. Okay, until that time frame is up. Here's why that's great. Every year, programmes get updated. And some classes change here and there, especially with more specific degrees. It's the same thing here. Okay, once you start a catalogue, here, you are bound to that catalogue year, they will always ask you, what catalogue are you on? That's a big deal. Okay, because every year programmes change. If you come to back to the school, and they don't offer one of those classes, it was on that Cal all year, they have to provide you a substitution that works. That's feasible for you in place of that to help you graduate. So it's kind of nice, it's like a contract. Okay? So catalogues are important. catalogues also tell you everything you need to know about your school policies. If you're doing anything with transferring credits, when you want to come from Pell city to UT, your catalogue will tell you if it's the same class as one at UT. So sometimes people have come from other schools, like if they transfer from Ole Miss to UT. Okay, and there was a class at Ole Miss. And they're not sure if it transfers and it's something that UT they can show the catalogue and the master syllabus and they will petition it to counter something here. That's where those are used. Okay, so very, very important document. And then after you look in the catalogue, and we're going to show you the course descriptions. So you have an example what it looks like. But you also need to look up the Pell city state UTK equivalency table. What that is, is a list of UT classes and how they transfer or what they are at PLC. So you know exactly what is the right class for you to take. So there's no question of Does this count will just transfer I'm not sure what classes is coming as it's very clear. Okay. So those four resources is something different for you guys based on classes before because we used to use these things called transitions, guides, but UT stopped updating them for us. So we can't use those anymore, because they're not as accurate as they should be. We wish they would have updated because they were great. But because they have changed requirements with catalogues. They haven't updated them for a while. So we don't want to mislead you on any classes by using old information. Okay, so let's look at this a little bit further. and choosing a pathway. So this is what one would look like for you to notice. These are all UT class numbers. Okay. But as advisors and LCP we look at this and I automatically Now a couple things that are at UT, or and possibly, okay, English one on one. That's English. 1010.
They have math 113 I think is math 1010
Oh, you're fine. Okay. And natural science. Obviously. That's what we had social work. 201st year studies, one on one, which is this class. Okay, so, just so you guys see this does transfer in. Okay, social work. We do have I think we might have that one. This is speech. cop two. Okay, foreign language, I lyst psych. 10 hundred 10 or 110? I should say. That one is our 1030. Okay, so we're trying to know these things. When we look at it, obviously, we know that y'all aren't going to know that like we do, because we've just done it for a long time. But those are things that are going to transfer in here. econ to open is actually now two classes here and it possibly you can do an option of the fast track class, which is to have one or it's broken into two semesters, like we have it up. Okay. 20 120 200, things like that. So that's why it's important to come CS. Okay. So this is what's your going to this was an example. This is just social work. If someone was going to major in social work, this is the pathway they would follow while they're at possibly. term 123 and four, that's semester 123, and four. Okay, so this would be what isn't what needs to be completed to be a junior in social work? Okay, yes, ma'am.
They're literally two different classes, but they transfer in is one here, but that doesn't happen as much anymore. Now they broken them up here as well. So the main example would be like accounting, 1010, and 1020. Those are two classes. But here it's one, but it's way more accelerated. So it has the same credit and requirement on the degree but it's just broken up into smaller sections opposed to be which, that's how I took it was two different classes. And I liked it way better as two classes versus one, one class would be really hard. So that's why we do econ the same way. But account says econ 201, or the two classes now that it is here. So it works.
Okay, so this is what you're going to choose for the project. Just choose one, you need a list of classes that you're going to transfer to this personal academic plan. Okay, so this is your checklist. Okay, any questions on that?
way I described this often is this is the furniture store. Yes. He walked into IKEA. Look at the sample. And I'm like,
He wanted to look like then the next steps to figure out whether or not Yep.
Okay, so this is Pella sippy catalogue page. Okay. Every TV or school is going to like this. So this is going to be very consistent with other schools in the state might not look like the one that UT but it does look like all the other TV our schools, we have a very similar system. Okay. Tennessee border regions, sorry. You know, 10 si tech, University of Memphis, ETFs. You, Carson. Well, not Carson was not in any school. It's not Yeah, it's a state school. Okay, Cleveland State and all those schools. So what you're going to do is on the main page, under Resources, it says college catalogue. That's what you're going to click on. Ok. And then on the side has this thing called course descriptions, it's actually on this side of the screen. This is an old screenshot. But of course description is where you're going to park. Okay, there's a filter at the top is what I wanted you to see. So you can choose a prefix of a course. So for English ENGL for this class, co Ll, okay. So that's what I mean when I say prefix, and you'll choose a prefix and just filter and then the all the classes there are only with that prefix come up. Okay. So in this case, someone did Econ, ECON. Okay. And there's only two classes. So what I wanted to show you on this specific one is a couple things. You'll see the name of the course, do you see the star comes to UT. Okay, that's how you know how many credits that it will be a description of what the class is about. prerequisite, notice that econ 2020, which is actually 2200. Now, there's a prerequisite of 2010, which is 2100. So you have to take macro before micro. That's what it means when I say prerequisite, okay? Now, it comes over, it says, The combined courses you con 2010 and 2020 are equivalent to econ 201, at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Okay. So this gives you all the information you need to know of if it transfers, what it's about how many credit hours it would be and what the prefix and what the class would be called. Okay, so you get a lot of information just from the catalogue. So you're going to use the catalogue to find all the courses on that list. Okay, but you're also going to need one more piece of the puzzle, which is the actual code, what's the chart to know? What am I looking at? It tells it be okay, if UT tells me I need to take econ to a one. And we use that equivalency chart. Okay, that's off the advising page. I need to make sure that, Stephanie put that on here, because she changed this up a little bit. So I need to make sure I show you where that is. But this tells you all the information you need to know about order. Okay. And I'm going to talk about that in a little bit in just a second, but just give you a more information about how to look it up. But I want you to see what you're ultimately trying to do. Before I get to that part. Okay. So, um, this is an example of someone who was doing an associate of arts because there's language built in. Okay, just an example of someone of classes I took notice on the first semester, it says non credit. Next is 00 10. because someone's taking General Studies math with remediation, it doesn't count as a college level part right there. But the 1010 does. So the hours for 00 10 don't count towards the degree when it comes to graduation, because they're not college level yet. Okay. So this is just an example of classes that people have taken. Okay. So you'll work with us to decide your next classes, obviously, you can plan that first year with us. You've already planned your fall. Okay, so you already have some guidance on the fall of what you need to take. A lot of the things you'll take in the spring are sequences to what you took in the fall. So that'll help you plan your schedule for the spring anyway. Especially taking the first biology you'll take the second biology in the spring kind of thing comp, one in the fall camp two in the spring, okay, things like that, that are sequences. Here at UT, students take an average of 15 hours at Pell city full times 12. That's a difference. That's why a lot of kids like to take summer classes to catch up. Okay, so your first semester, you guys are at the advantage of coming and already with six hours from the summer. Okay, so that helps you guys out with your hours. But if you were to just do two semesters, and you have to get 30 hours for UT, obviously, you have to take an average of 15 each semester.
You're allowed to do that.
No, I mean, you can still take 15 even though you've taken some summer classes, and that's something you're gonna be doing here. You pay for 15 whether you do it or not. Okay, so do be full time here. That's what you have to take. So I would recommend getting used to close to that amount of hours. Okay, so that it's not a shock when you come here. Okay, so and I also recommend, always write on this form in pencil because you're going to be doing some erasing and moving around. Okay. Now, what I want to show on here, this not on here, I'm just realising, I want to just go to the internet. How do I just get off here?
say the first four fingers you heard
Is this. A?
Yeah, I didn't the internet. Yeah, I can just whatever, fine. I'm just gonna go to this page.
That's what I was doing one minute ago. So four fingers to the right to the left.
Oh, this way.
Okay. So make sense? Sure. So there.
Okay. Alright, so I'm going to show you a couple things that I just talked about, so you know exactly where they are. No questions about it. Okay. resources at the top right here. College catalogue, you see it? Okay. So I'm going to click on it just so you can see. Okay, now, of course descriptions right here. Do you see I'm pointing right here? On the other side, opposite side that it was? Why is it doing okay, there? Yeah. So, here's that filter. If you don't filter it out, every single class that Chelsea's on here. That's a lot of classes. Okay. So, if I was to scroll down here, you'll see that it just keeps going with whatever in the alphabetical order. Okay. So that's why it's important to use that filter. Okay, the other thing I want to show you is let's go to where this equivalency chart is because you really cannot transcribe what UT wants versus what else would be has, if you don't have this equivalency chart. So let me go back to here. College services, advising. Okay, so if you come to our office, this is where we're going to take you for sure. Okay, you're going to scroll down. advising resources. Why is it do that? Okay. degree checklists. Okay. There's always if you're looking at General Associate of Arts or Associate of Science, it's right there at policy be okay. I want you guys to go to transfer guys in articulation agreements. articulation agreements is basically the equivalency charts for schools. Okay. It's just an they're also agreements of you take this you'll transfer in fine. My gosh, why is why is it do that?
It's like trying to smart trying to tell you what the word means is it means you don't know.
I don't know.
Okay, so University of Tennessee. Okay, see where I'm at. I just scroll down schools all the way to the bottom is obviously universities, he's going to be towards the end. Okay. Transfer course search. That's where you want to go. Okay. So, in this case, you guys would pick.
See, it is Tennessee.
House, hippie, hippie.
Okay. So Matt, because this is UT site, you know, something on youtube banner site. Okay. Now, here's what it is. first column is spelled sippy. Okay. And then it has the vehicle course number. So you would take whatever major you pick off the UT catalogue, you would take our catalogue, once you know the course numbers from this equivalency chart. Okay, so when it said English one on one, here's the cool thing about this site, you can search ENGL Okay, you can search for either the new t course number or the LCP course number here and it will pop up. So now I know already. English 1010 is English one on one here. Okay, so that's how you look them up. Also, a really helpful column here is right here that you will use while you're at UT. Notice that it just tells you what requirement it meets here at UT. Okay, so, literature's count as humanities here, arts and humanities, this would be one of your written communication requirements for UT. Okay, that's how you can find out if it's meeting a requirement at UT. While you're here.
Um, the other one I wanted to show you is
okay, math. Give me some examples of math, you're taking this fall.
Everybody should be in a map this fall.
If you're not when you look your schedule
1010. Okay. So, if you see him at 1010 for general studies. Okay. 1010 General Studies. It's math 113. Here, okay. But also, it's a quantitative reasoning requirement here. But what I want you to show we have huge confusion every year with bridge students on college algebra, because it is a prerequisite to get into 1834 business, which is a very popular major. Okay. Notice college algebra 1130. Math 119. Here. Okay. So it comes in as an elective of 119. But it does not meet a quantitative reasoning requirement. Okay, no alarm, you're taking the class, you're fine. It counts as elective hours, it counts towards your 30 here. Okay, so if you get into college algebra, because you're doing business, or you need to get upper level math,
don't worry, you're still it's still counting towards your 30. Okay.
So what I wanted you guys to see is, this is an easy way to use whatever you're doing at UT and what you want to do to check what if we have it up? And then you can get the pulse of the course number. So it's up to you if you want them to do UT course numbers? Or if you want them to do possibly course numbers. Okay.
But obviously, you gotta check to make sure we offer the class,
And do you guys have any questions or something you want me to show you on Pell city site?
Do you want me to show you where I went to get the major? Like the beauty website to pick out your page? Okay.
Effectively, the students are working backwards, right? You're working from the goals of UT back to what UT calls the class and then figuring out what else if he goes to class. So being the hard work for students is they don't know which direction to start with, they start with stuff and try to translate it to what they need to be doing starting with UT stuff, figuring out what needs to be translated.
Okay. So utk.edu just go to the main page, because on the main page, they have this lovely thing called a to z index. Okay? If you ever need to find anything on our website, same thing, we have an A to Z index and that resource button, okay, so that when in doubt, always go there. Same thing with UT.
Stop it. Okay. So, catalogue clearly see, okay.
I don't even want to mess with it. I'm scared. Okay. So, catalogue, undergraduate and graduate. So if you want to do grad school through UT, you can see the same things for grad school here as well.
All right. Oh, my gosh.
me. Okay. So I'm now at UT catalogue. Okay, same thing for fellas of you. But this is you tease. This is what I wanted you guys to see. Do you see the majors HZ, they also have minors A to Z. So if you want to pick a minor, which typically is about 18 hours that you add on to your degree, that's where you can look, I ended up making a minor out of my degree, because I just took a lot of political science classes and liked it. So you can do that. You have that choice transcript was is there any advantage
to monitor I know back in our day, that was people talking about majors and minors? What's the value of my personal experience? This is opportunities,
potentially, like if you're going to major, let's say you want to teach in high school, you're going to major in whatever subject you want to teach him. But you have to minor in education. So you get the you can get the certification and teach. If you are doing sports management, you're going to minor in business. That's a requirement. So certain majors here do require a minor, certain ones don't or you can just elect to because you liked the topic or you just interested in it, or you took enough classes in that area that it makes a minor. Okay, so you have some choices. A business minor can always help with a major, like if you're getting a job that requires a little bit of business knowledge, but not quite the full business major. Yes, ma'am. Not till your junior senior. Yeah, he would do all that here.
So your experience, you had already collected the classes, you look back retrospectively and said, Oh my gosh, I'm really close to a minor. I'll take one more of these.
Yeah, I took a lot of seminar classes that were extra ended up equaling my 18 hours. So they order me one.
Okay, so what I want to do is
I'm done. I did it one time, or you
just can't with you. Okay, so give me some examples of majors. Actually, let's just use communication cuz that's a good one. Is that what you're wanting to major in? Is communication? Are you just still thinking? Okay, so, lucky there didn't do it? Yeah. Okay. So, there are a lot of Chinese here. Okay. Okay, Communication Studies right here. Okay. Notice that this is that same chart, like you saw on the presentation, like social work, okay. So it stops at term for, for you guys to do the two years. Okay, because turn five and honest, junior year on. These are suggested orders, it doesn't mean that that's what you're going to do, because you have to meet the requirements to take the courses. So for instance, you can't take comp two if you haven't taken comp one, or you can't take a literature till you're done with comp two. Okay, so there's some order to it. And that's why the catalogue helps you. So, if you see on here, there are two maps required for communication studies. Okay. We see one says quantitative reasoning elective, the math 1010 would work there. Okay. But then you come down here, and it says math 115? Well, that's elementary stats. So you got to take both in order to meet the requirements for this major. Okay. That it does have foreign language, so have fun. And then there are specific ones, there are certain ones that they want, they don't just put social sciences on some of these, their specific they want you to take general psych. So that's when you can definitely take LCP
the CMST 2010 speech.
Okay, gotta take speech. They're not as picky. There's a couple different communication courses, you can take a pulse up. But you do need to have an intermediate level of Spanish, if that's what you're taking. Usually anything turn five and on if 300 level classes because they're junior and senior level, they're starting to get higher. Okay, so what we can do is set you up to where you would come in at term five and be ready to go. Okay.
You said about 15 hours, you can see that's pretty crowded. Yeah. So obviously, to get your 30 hours in, most of you don't need those classes. But this is your target. And you don't want to be missing classes that you're aiming for. You want to think like this, instead of just getting 30 hours. Is that fair to say? Okay,
yeah. So ultimately, duties lyst is your boss, if you're coming here, you need to follow they're list. Just find out what classes those are LCP and then make a plan of what would be a strategic order for you to take them here if you were to stay for your two years. Okay, so that's the whole point of the project.
I don't know what you're requiring with signatures from advisors, because it's kind of hard to do in the summer, but
during the summer, I really don't push that. I don't want to burn the advisors that are sitting around.
I'll tell you what Glenda is doing in her class, her two classes, they are filling out their forms, and they're emailing Stephanie or Scott. And then they'll look over them and tell you, you're good or not. And if you're not, they'll tell you what's wrong with it. Okay, so you can fix it. So they said, So, I mean, they're doing it for the other two classes. So Scott's not doing any for the other two classes. Only Stephanie is so I would probably bug Scott. That'd be great.
What is your major?
Let me look at your central and we're done.
I'm sure there's a reason behind it. But I need to look at it.
Yeah, no, you should. They recommend you get your math everywhere is close to high school as possible, especially if you don't have a lot. So you remember what you had in high school?
Okay, any other initial questions you have about the project?
No? Okay, so you guys took a picture of Scott's information. I'm also going to put mine up here. Oh, can I write on this? Yeah, okay, just finished. Okay.
I'm gonna put my email up here. I'll put it on our page. Okay.
I am in the office with Scott in the fall, so I can help as well. But that's my email if y'all have any. Sorry. I just realised I'm you're taking pictures, and I don't want to be in
it. If y'all need any help, you can absolutely email me. Okay.
And then we can get you on track. So if you get stuck, email one of us and ask. Okay.
I know this is like a lot of information at one time, sorry.
But if you have an initial question, just email us right away, and we'll get clear up anything we need to clear up so you can keep moving on the project. Do you have a due date for this at all? Sunday, this Sunday,
okay. With all these materials, it doesn't
take long, you just have to sit down and do it. It's
it's just a matter of having everything out in front of you using a computer and having the different screens and just going back and forth and figuring out okay, that's what this class is, this is the requirement. Where does it fit on my plan? Okay, so your plan should equal 63 hours, because you guys took the college 1500 this this summer, and it's a three hour class, not the one hour. So when you're done, it should meet 63 hours. That's how you'll know that you're on track and you've done all the requirements. So use it like a checklist of here's what's required. Here's the class, check it off when you put it on the plan that way you know you're done with it. And just make sure you transfer it over 63 hours in the right order.
No other questions?
As right now, okay. So, yeah,
possible. Yes, for sure.
