UA 156 is your course name for your research semester. You will note that the meeting time and room for UA 156 in the class schedule will be marked TBA, that is okay. UA 156 is treated much like an independent study, there are no set meeting times or locations for this course. Instead, you should arrange a weekly research schedule with your faculty mentor within the first two weeks of the semester. The director of the Emerging Scholars Program is the instructor of record for UA 156, however, your faculty mentor will be recommending a grade for you for this course.
Within the first two weeks of the start of classes, you should complete the Research Agreement Form (see below). You must meet with your faculty mentor before you complete this form.
UA 156 is different from Departmental Course Credit! You certainly may enroll in departmental course credit after you complete the Emerging Scholars Program. Or you may enroll in departmental course credit before you begin the Emerging Scholars Program. You may not receive ESP credit for departmental course credit. That is, you must enroll in UA 156 to complete the Emerging Scholars Program.
If you experience unanticipated issues during your research semester, contact the director of the Emerging Scholars Program as soon as possible. Do not wait until the end of the semester.
