The Early Success Initiative provides an opportunity for Student Services and instructional faculty to partner in order to share important resources with students and connect them with Counseling for additional support if they are struggling in class. Using Comet Connect, faculty teaching in the 16-week sessions have 2 different “check-ins” available during the term. These check-ins target student needs during key moments in the semester. The Academic Check-in results in Counseling reaching out to students who may be at risk of not completing the course. We will collect data and review faculty feedback on the 16-week courses, adjust, and consider expanding to other sessions (FT1, FT2, and the 4-week sessions).
Connect for Success is an intake form that new students complete after they apply to Palomar College. Students who complete the form are connected with key programs and services that can support them towards completion. After a student completes a Connect for Success Form, department representatives reach out to students with information about their programs and services.
