What will you come away with after one of our classes?

Here’s what our former students have said:

CPD 102AB: “I thought that the workbook activities, career aptitude assessments, class discussions, and class assignments were all beneficial to my learning. Also, I enjoyed listening to the professor's life and career experiences. It makes a difference to me when I can hear about others and that their paths have been non-linear. Overall, the class format was very insightful and useful, and I enjoyed being a member of this class.”

CPD 150AC: “I think this course was awesome... I also think it should be a required course for all degrees or certificates.”

Students are required to take CPD150AC within the first two semesters if:

  • They are attending college for the first time;
  • Intend to earn a degree; and
  • Had a high school grade point average below 2.6
