College Success Strategies course

December 11, 2017 by Anonymous

Transitioning from military to civilian life can be difficult enough without adding in the rigors of academic studies. That’s why Northland Pioneer College has partnered with S.E.E.4Vets to offer free tuition for veterans enrolling in a Success Strategies for College course this spring.

“We recognize that many veterans have not been in a formal classroom setting for a number of years,” explains Jeremy Raisor, NPC’s director of Enrollment Services and Registrar. “Thanks to a grant from S.E.E.4Vets, up to 20 veterans per semester can enroll for free in a Success Strategies for College course that helps them access a multitude of resources to fully develop academic and life skills and improve critical thinking skills that will lead to success in college and in the transition to civilian life.”

Offered via NPC’s interactive instructional network to all nine NPC locations, the three-credit Success Strategies for College class (HDE 105) meets on Thursday mornings, 8 to 10:44. Credits will transfer to all three state universities as an elective. The class is not just for veterans, but is open to all students.

“I encourage students to set goals and celebrate reaching milestones in life,” adds instructor Anthony Hill. “This course is structured, yet highly individualized to meet the needs of each student.”

Veterans needing more information about enrolling in this free class should check with NPC’s Veterans Certifying Official Delceta Morgan, 524-7469, or the academic adviser at their closest NPC location.

Registration is currently underway for spring semester classes. Most classes begin the week of January 16. For the latest course offerings, visit www.npc.edu/class-schedule, or stop by any of NPC’s nine locations in Navajo and Apache county to speak with an academic adviser.

S.E.E.4Vets (Support Education & Employment for Vets) is a nonprofit organization partnering with Arizona's community colleges to implement programs to improve student veteran retention and to “persist and advance” to achieve educational goals. To learn more, visit their website.
