The University of Nevada, Reno and the College of Education is committed to creating a culture of student success and completion. Our five-day intensive academic bootcamp is designed to increase success for freshmen joining the College of Education in majors of Human Development and Family Studies and Pre-Education majors planning to pursue degrees in Integrated Elementary Teaching, and Secondary Education. We also welcome undecided students.

The primary goal of FIT2Care is to help students transition successfully from high school to college. FIT2Care provides a realistic orientation to the style, pace, intensity and rigor of college courses with actual course professors. After completing this mandatory program, students are better prepared for their first semester of college. FIT2Care takes place the week before school starts.
