Overview

For First-Year Experience, College Success, and Student Development courses. Written specifically for 1 credit hour student success courses and/or those with blended and online students, it addresses the needs and challenges of students as digital learners. It aligns with learning outcomes from both the Student Success CourseConnect online course and MyStudentSuccessLab. Designed for use as a stand alone text or a print companion with one of these technologies for hybrid, online, or 1 credit hour student success courses.

The College Experience Compact provides students with the “unwritten rules” for college success to help them develop a plan to handle any situation. Student success doesn’t just happen. Instead, it is a combination of motivation, preparation, knowledge, persistence, and relationships. No matter how prepared some students are for the academic challenges of college, they may not always be ready for the cultural challenges that include understanding professors’ expectations and navigating financial issues that are part of the experience. Written to provide clear, concise, and practical information and concepts through a unique Feature set, students are prompted to review important college documents such as the syllabus, consider how to make good choices and maintain their personal integrity, and analyze their own situations and apply the content to new ones. Specifically, students will learn what college expectations are and how to exceed them.
