Title: First Year Experience Courses for Students in Developmental Education
Description: First year experience courses are designed to support the academic performance, social development, persistence, and degree completion of college students. They are also known as college success courses or freshman seminars and topics commonly discussed include study skills, campus resources, time management, career exploration, campus policies, and academic advising. The WWC reviewed the research on first year experience courses and found that they have potentially positive effects on academic achievement, degree attainment, and credit accumulation for postsecondary students.
