Year: 
2015

Established a personalized enrollment pathway for adult learners.  Each student now jointly works with his/her admissions counselor and academic advisor to develop an enrollment pathway. This enrollment plan begins with a counseling session with an adult learner admissions counselor that outlines all possible pathways to establish successful academic and financial plans. The student finishes with a meeting with the academic advisor to work on placement and the first semester schedule.

Developed a military students/veterans’ tracking report within the in-house ARGOS data reporting system that accurately reports military affiliated students at the time of admission.

Opened a Veterans’ Lounge at the Camden Center to provide a military- friendly study lounge for that student population.

Hired a VA work-study student to work in the Camden Center’s Veterans’ Lounge.

Established a new baccalaureate degree program in Interdisciplinary Studies (BSIS) to encourage degree completion and offer more flexible course credit options for adult learners and military students/veterans.

Received local media coverage in local newspaper and radio commercials promoting the new Interdisciplinary Studies baccalaureate degree program.

Jointly developed a Military Students/Veterans’ Online Survey, in collaboration with the Director of Military Affairs at the USG Board of Regents, which was sent to all USG institutions, asking them to complete a brief online survey in an effort to identify some of the key initiatives and best practices employed to address military students’/veterans’ needs. 

Received institutional designation as a Military Friendly School in 2014. 

Established a close relationship with local National Guard and Reserve Units.

Created a communication flow for students self-identifying as “military/veteran” during admission process, connecting them with the admissions counselor that specializes in working with military students and families. The communications sent to this targeted student population highlight all of the military-friendly resources established at CCGA to help them be successful and specifically address information needed to complete the enrollment process.
