The JTA Program is a Peer Mentoring Program that allows students the opportunity to mentor incoming freshmen through the Freshman Seminar Program. Students must apply to be a JTA and will enroll in a hybrid course ID 4090 (3 credits). Students will enroll in ID 4090 separately, but will NOT enroll in the Freshman Seminar in which they are a JTA. ID 4090 will examine the complementary processes of teaching and learning from both the theoretical and pragmatic perspectives. Students will learn to engage, listen and assist first-year students in a mature and professional manner relating to their adjustment to UCCS and academic success. Students will also work with faculty sponsors to contribute to the instruction of their designated Freshman Seminar class.
