SBCC Launches New Accelerated Program for Students

Express to Success, with 300 enrollees, lessens the time it takes to complete degrees and transfer requirements

More than 240 SBCC students got a head start on their fall studies last Friday by attending the new SBCC Express to Success Program orientation and luncheon.

The students are part of a new accelerated program designed to help participants complete their two-year associate degree or transfer requirements in no more than two to three years.

With 300 students enrolled, the Express to Success Program involves specialized curriculum, learning communities (groups of students taking specially selected courses together) and additional resources such as counseling, book loans and financial aid.

It is funded through a $3.2 million federal Title V grant.

SBCC opened its fall semester on Monday.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
