Fundamentals Of Academic Success

Fundamentals of Academic Success is a comprehensive course designed to enhance a student's success and retention in post-secondary education. This course will help students develop strategies that, when properly applied, will lead to greater academic, professional, and personal success. Students will be challenged to reflect upon their academic experiences to date in order to assess how they may accept personal responsibility, increase self-motivation, improve self-management, develop interpersonal abilities, maximize learning, and master effective academic-related skills moving forward. The goal is for students to carefully consider their own academic desires and to create concrete plans for successful (re)integration into future post-secondary programs.
