ACE College Reading for Success

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

College Reading for Success focuses on strengthening the reading skills and strategies of incoming freshman students to maximize their learning experience and academic performance at UIC. The 6-week course employs readings in a variety of subject areas that students are likely to study during their undergraduate years. Students are expected to carefully complete all reading assignments and participate in classes focusing on the readings and related matters. The course has no cost, carries no graduation credit, and involves no formal evaluation of students. However, class attendance will be recorded and reported to Summer College. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, College Reading for Success will be conducted in a fully online format using the Zoom videoconferencing platform and UIC email. Students are expected to check their UIC email daily, reveal their faces during classes, and contribute to class discussions orally and via Zoom’s chat feature.

CRS students will need reliable Internet access and an electronic device that can accommodate videoconferencing.

On June 20, students who have completed their enrollment in CRS will be emailed a Zoom link for attending the course, which begins on June 21.
