FY 100 - The Art of Student Success

This course is designed to provide opportunities for students to engage in introspection and self-evaluation so that they can succeed in an online college environment.  Through guided self-reflection, students will evaluate their English, math, and research skills and identify resources that will help  them improve upon these skills. Students will gain an understanding of the financial responsibilities of obtaining a degree, as well as become familiar with the college’s policies, tools, and resources. A guided, self-reflective approach to creating a strategy for degree completion will be the final assignment in the class.
