Academic Success Courses
Academic Success Courses focus on techniques needed to advance in college and in life and provide helpful information to achieve and maintain success. These courses are recommended to students who feel they may need advice or tips on studying, note taking, critical thinking, college-level reading, and memory improvement. They may also be required of students on academic probation.
While Academic Success Courses do not count toward the 128 semester hours required to graduate, they provide an essential outlook on how to succeed in college and how to maximize their skills.
