College Success Strategies

Attention: JCCC Veteran Students.

We’ve got a roadmap that leads to your success!

Uncover your potential • Learn strategies • Achieve your goals

Talk to your counselor about enrolling in College Success Strategies, COLL 200 (PDF), a class designed specifically to help you transition into college alongside fellow vets.

You’ll take away:

  • Effective studying techniques
  • Methods to navigate college stressors
  • Ways to use valuable campus and community resources

This class meets on Mondays and Wednesdays from noon to 1:15 p.m. in CC 324 for the Spring 2020 semester, which runs Jan. 22-May 22.

Your success is top priority!

Stop by the Veteran & Military Student Resource Center, COM 305, anytime to chat about how COLL 200 can benefit you.
