The Early Start Experience is a unique program that offers students an opportunity to prepare, explore, and connect with other students before classes begin in August. In addition to new student orientation and roadrunner days, the Early Start Experience is tailored to meet students’ individual needs. Students learn how to be successful in college courses, use student support resources, connect with Fostering Educational Success Center staff, and build relationships with other students before the semester begins.

Benefits of the Early Start Experience

  • Free laptop, printer, and bookstore credit!
  • Gift cards, free shirts, swag, and more!
  • Early move-in!
  • Meals and social activities!
  • Opportunities to connect with other foster care alumni at UTSA!
