Summary

If students don't know the "unwritten rules" for community college success how might it impact them? This book meets students where they are and helps them develop a plan to handle any situation. The Community College Experiencerecognizes Student Success is determined by motivation, preparation, knowledge, persistence, and relationships, the outcome largely measured byperformancein other courses from the first term throughout the college career. Students are often not prepared for the social and cultural challenges such as meetingexpectations, managingpressures on time, and navigatingfinancial issues. Many of the standards for college success are indeed those "unwritten rules" that require an experienced perspective to anticipate, understand, and overcome. This text covers the topics students need to make the transition into a community college culture, become active learners, and make intelligent choices. Course materials are realistic and supportive. They resonate withdiverse student backgrounds, including first-generation college students, students of color, returning adults, and others. Once students know the "rules" - written and unwritten they can adapt their plan for a more successful college experience.
