College(s)Contact NameStatement Summary
Division of Academic and Student AffairsKim OutingThank you for sending your ED 103 syllabus for review. Given that this class is expressly for ECHS students, I have no concerns. The Majors Exploration Series that we sponsor is open to all University students, so requiring attendance at that event is fine for inclusion in the course assignments.

Please let us know if you will be assigning the textbook we publish.

I have one suggestion for the course description to clarify the classification of these students:

In their high school junior year, all Wake STEM Early College High School students must take two one-hour, letter-graded courses: ED 103 – Introduction to University Education I (fall semester) and ED 104 – Introduction to University Education II (spring semester) at NC State University.

Best,
Kim
