Required Student Activities

Searchpath Instructions


The University has implemented four career proficiency checks for all students to complete while at Southeast.  Students must complete these proficiency checks before graduation.

 These proficiencies were implemented to insure that all students graduate with appropriate career planning knowledge and a professional resume and cover letter.

When students register for UI100, they also register for two co-requisites: CL001 and CL002.  Students will complete career development assignments in their UI100 courses to meet these proficiency checks.

CL001 - 0.0 credit - Co-Requisite with UI100

Students complete FOCUS, a web-based assessment of their talents, interests, and abilities, during UI100 as part of their grade in that course.

CL002 - 0.0 credit - Co-Requisite with UI100

Students interpret the results of their FOCUS career assessment and complete an Action Plan.

Note: Transfer students (or other students who do not take UI100) and their advisors should refer to the Career Proficiency Checks Transfer Student Guidelines Matrix available in the Office of Career Services to determine steps warranted in their individual circumstances.

Sexual Violence Prevention


UI100 students will view a six minute Sexual Violence Prevention video and pass a quiz with a 60% or better. This video will introduce students to the Campus Violence Prevention Program and Title IX coordinators.

The three Student Learning Outcomes for UI100, First-Year Seminar, are:

  1. Students will identify a variety of types and formats of sources of information
