College and Career Success Skills

The focus of the College and Career Success Skills (COLL1010) course is intended for all first-time enrolled students accepted to the College that has not participated in a college experience. Newly enrolled students entering the College with a minimum of an associate’s degree and/or students with more than 30 successful semester credit hours will be exempt. New students to the College are required to complete the course during their first or second semester of enrollment. The key emphasis is placed upon promoting connections between student needs for developing college–level success skills and NGTC resources.

Prior to the beginning of  fall 2015, the COLL 1010 course was designed to provide tools to assist students to acquire skills necessary to achieve academic and professional success in their chosen occupational/technical program of study. The course is intended to improve the student’s college readiness, increase awareness of campus support services, and develop skills in technology, time management, effective study habits, work/life/school balance, and career planning. 

Academic year 2015-2016 is the first full year of data tracked for persistence and completion at this time; however, tracking persistence and completion rates of students that have completed COLL 1010 as compared to those students in previous years who did not participate in the course will continue as an on-going process.
