What is University 101
University 101 is a program that offers FREE, non-credit, academic courses that will engage students to a wide range of university topics. Non-credit means that you will get a completion certificate for attending the course, but the course cannot be applied to a degree or diploma program.
We try to support our students as much as possible, so meals are provided at the beginning of each class. Bus tickets and child care subsidies are also available.

To provide introductory academic courses to people whose economic and social circumstances normally pose obstacles to university education.
Why do a course like University 101 or 102?
