COLL 1003: College Success

What is College Success?

College Success, COLL 1003, is TCC’s student success course. It is a required course for all students who receive the Tulsa Achieves Scholarship and all students who place into any zero-level reading, writing, or math course. We want you to be successful at TCC and beyond! Ten years’ worth of TCC data show that students who take College Success (formerly First Year Experience Seminar) are more likely to succeed in their college courses, stay in school, and graduate.
