Welcome to CONEX!

Led by Dr. Jim Rolf, Associate Professor in Mathematics, Cavalier Online Experiences (CONEX) helps incoming UVA students excel in quantitative study while building community with classmates. CONEX participants benefit from a wealth of online content, including videos, real-time discussions with other CONEX students, advice and mentoring from the current UVA students who serve as CONEX coaches, and a variety of problem sets, quizzes and other assessments to help them enhance their transition to UVA in the fall. Many of the quantitative concepts and skills covered in CONEX are drawn directly from UVA’s introductory math courses and are utilized across disciplines in UVA’s curriculum—ranging from physics to chemistry to engineering.

It’s more than just about the math…

As incoming UVA students, you’ve already proven you can perform at the highest level, and you’ve shown that you make the most of your opportunities. CONEX gives you another opportunity to build on your strengths—without leaving your home or giving up your summer job, research position, athletic competition, and other pursuits. It is an experimental, cutting-edge program designed for experimental, cutting-edge scholars, and will accelerate your academic transition to UVA and provide access to a supportive group of peers and mentors before you step foot on Grounds!
