Welcome to the Entering Student Program
The Entering Student Program (ESP) serves the majority of students at UTEP. The program offers two courses—UNIV 1301 and UNIV 2350—that make up Block IX of the University Core Curriculum. ESP also administers learning communities (linked courses) for general and special populations to help students make academic and social connections. Another key component of ESP is a large peer (student) leader program that prepares and supports students who serve as members of the instructional team for UNIV courses.
