Academic Insights Measure (AIM) Survey

This instrument will be administered each spring semester and asks students to report how they spent their time during the previous fall semester engaging in such activities as studying, meeting with instructors and advisers, sleeping, working one or more jobs and accessing campus resources. In partnership with the Office of Data Analytics and Institutional Research (DAIR), SRI hopes to assess this data to determine and share with the UNT community what successful students do to achieve academic excellence.

Early Start is a summer bridge program for first year science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors.  The goals of this program are to increase the students’ knowledge and confidence in STEM subjects and college writing, and to help them transition more successfully into university life. This residential program is designed to offer freshman STEM majors the opportunity to earn up to six (6) hours of graded credit during the 5-Week Two Session of summer school.
