Are you a first time student new to college fresh out of high school? Or perhaps you are an older student who is returning to school after being away from the classroom for a few years. You are both in the right place!

College Success Strategies is designed to build on skills that you might already have while expanding your self-confidence and ability to benefit from a college experience. We will apply technology tips and strategies immediately, so students will quickly see how this course will benefit them in other courses. Later, students will work on materials that will support them both in and out of college. Financial literacy information, career awareness, and technology skills are critical as students move from the classroom to the workplace.

I encourage you to ask a question of yourself as this course begins: What learning outcomes are most important? Find two or more outcomes that you will concentrate on this semester. Every student who finishes this course will be able to say that it has benefited them personally or academically.
