FY 100 - The Art of Student Success

Through research designed to promote introspection and self-evaluation, students will create a strategy for success in an online college environment.  Through guided self-reflection students will evaluate their English, math, and research skills and then identify resources that will help them improve upon these skills. Students will create a complete financial assessment of the cost of obtaining a degree and explore the regulations and responsibilities associated with financial aid. A guided, self-reflective approach to creating a strategy for degree completion will be the final assignment in the class.
