College of Science and Mathematics

Prospective Students

The CSM BOND program is a one year program serving incoming College of Science and Mathematics freshmen, currently in its third year of operation. The program centers around the two GE courses all students in the program are guaranteed enrollment in. These courses are CSM 10: The Scientific Method providing GE Area A3 credit in the fall and CSM 15: Evidence Based Decision Making for GE Area E in the spring. The program offers a true cohort experience; meaning the students who are in your CSM 10 class will be in your Math and Chemistry courses - so you will always have a familiar face. The CSM 10 and 15 courses are DiscoverE courses, meaning students are expected to bring a tablet or laptop to the class. All students in our program are guaranteed a tablet for loan as long as they enroll in the CSM BOND program and complete the application by May 24.
