Students in need of basic skills remediation face even worse statistics.
A student walks onto a CCC campus for the first time, unsure of what they want to do, but knowing generally that they want to find a direction in both life and career.
The student is able to go online or get an appointment to meet with a counselor or advisor to learn about the wide array of options available at the college and maybe a few offered elsewhere. The options presented aren't discrete classes but rather pathways toward different futures. Not all of them are easy; some require a lot of time and work, but the student seeks where they lead and understands what needs to be done to succeed in each pathway.
The student participates in a college orientation and prepares for the assessment tests. They learn that most paths will require work on basic skill mathematics and English.
The student easily finds the financial aid office where they learn the various financial aid opportunities available. They see that they can maximize financial aid opportunities by deciding to enroll full time and understand that accepting financial aid means accepting responsibility for their academic future.
Using either online or in-person counseling support, the student develops an education plan and determines a program of study. The student enrolls in basic skills coursework in the first term and follows the counselor's lead in selecting a college-level course that is appropriate to their level of preparation. The basic skills class may rely heavily on tutoring or use other approaches that help the student learn more effectively than in high school. The results of the diagnostic assessment test let the professor know what specific areas the student needs help with, so that they are able to focus on those particular things, moving at a pace that's comfortable. The student succeeds and takes the college-level coursework needed to complete their program of study. The students educational plan provides a roadmap, and they find that they're able to enroll in all the required courses in the semester in which the courses are needed. The student meets their educational goal, whether it be gaining concrete workplace skills, earning a certificate and/or associate degree, or transferring to a four-year college with an associate degree in hand. Wherever the path leads, the student successfully reaches their academic and career goals thus able to advance their career and earn a wage sufficient to support themselves and their family.
