Would you like a small classroom feel, but with big ideas, collaboration, and support?
Our Start Strong Cohorts provide a great way for students to complete college level
requirements in their first semester.
How does Start Strong work?
Students who are enrolled into a Start Strong cohort will take a full-time cluster of classes with their peers. Students in these
cohorts will also see the benefit of shortening time to degree through this pilot
program. Often, students who place into all three areas of developmental courses take
anywhere from two to four semesters to complete English and math courses - why not
do it in one?!
No. This schedule is pre-determined. Students must be eligible to enroll for all classes
in their cohort. Although students are encouraged to take all courses in the cohort,
there may be exceptions made.
The Start Strong Cohort listed in this block has a daytime schedule Monday through
The live virtual lecture (LVL) format means that the class meets online, at a specific
date and time, using a streaming service. Students are required to be online during
class time for lectures and other learning activities to experience real-time engagement
with faculty and classmates. Online assignments outside of regular LVL may be required.
