Transitional Courses

Academic Success Strategies for Reentry Students

2-unit transition course offered in fall and winter

Returning or beginning your academic career when you have generous life experience or after a significant gap in your education is both exciting and daunting. Every experience is new and it can take time to make the transition and adjust.  The goal of this Reentry Transitional Course is to introduce or sharpen those study skills that all successful students need to succeed academically and to introduce students to the services and opportunities that will be most helpful to them while completing their degree. Through in-class activities and guest speakers, students will build the tools needed to manage the demands and challenges of the research university. This course is by invitation only.
