Milestones are important goals you should complete in your first year to take you one step closer to reaching your education goals. There are four milestones you should complete within your first year.

  1. Get a Comprehensive Education Plan - Did you know having an education plan can increase your success?

    Meet with a Counselor

  2. Renew your Financial Aid Application - Did you know most community college students receive some form of financial aid?
  3. Take Math and English - Did you know taking Math and English your first year can help you reach your educational goals faster and increases your chances for graduation/transfer?
  4. Plan for 15 - Did you know taking 15+ units each semester increases your chances of completing coursework within two years and could qualify you for additional financial aid?
