Audited Courses at UC Davis

In addition to the Foundational Classes, the Redwood SEED Scholars will begin auditing UC Davis courses during Winter Quarter of their first year. The first audited course will be Nutrition 10, with Professor Debbie Fetter and TA Marcela Radtke. This is an entry level course that most UC Davis students take. It develops an understanding of the importance of nutrition and overall healthy decisions that young adults can make to influence their lives. 

It is repeatedly voted one of the best classes to take at UC Davis. We are thrilled to offer this opportunity to the Redwood SEED Scholars.

In Spring Quarter, the Redwood SEED Scholars will take one audited UC Davis course in their area of interest. This will be based on the student’s Person-Centered Plan that is developed in Fall Quarter with family and faculty and the student’s voice at the center. 

Each quarter thereafter, the Redwood SEED Scholar will choose an audited course in their area of concentration.

Academic mentors will provide support and guidance to the Redwood SEED Scholars in their audited courses as needed.

Senior year, Redwood SEED Scholars will work on a Capstone Project in their area of concentration. They will begin to consider projects in their Sophomore year and look to understand a need or a problem within their community that needs to be addressed. They will research, interview and plan a solution and craft it into a capstone project to be presented prior to graduation.
