College Success

COL 101: the College Success Seminar (one credit, first year) is designed to guide first-year students in the transition from high school and helps students acquire the skills necessary to take responsibility for their educational experience and become a self‑directed learner.

  • Throughout their first semester, students meet weekly with a cohort of 15‑20 students.
  • All full-time first-year students are required to take this seminar and may not withdraw.
  • Graded credit/no credit
  • Their COL 101 instructor serves as their first-semester academic advisor.

Students will learn important Cabrini policies and services and receive academic advising.

They take a series of interest and skill assessments to help determine how they learn best and begin exploring majors and career opportunities.

As a result of this course, students will:

  • demonstrate necessary skills (time management, study skills, and test-taking strategies) and lifelong learning (information literacy and career planning)
  • know how to utilize campus resources
  • demonstrate knowledge of relevant Cabrini policies
  • demonstrate knowledge of Cabrini’s heritage and traditions

COL 125: Career Planning & Exploration 

This course provides students with the ability to conduct career-planning and develop advanced job‑search techniques.

Students complete diverse assessments to evaluate and verify personal preferences, identify marketable and transferable skills, refine resumes, research opportunities, network, perform information interviews, and learn from Cabrini alumni.
