What is First Class?
First Class is a New Student Experience Program at Baton Rouge Community College. For new students, college can present many challenges. Navigating Enrollment Services, Financial Aid, and other campus resources is sometimes a barrier for new students. First Class provides student assistance, support, and learning in many areas, including:
*Creating Your Educational Plan
The life skills learned through First Class are transferable to home and career, as well as future educational endeavors. Students report that they are more confident in school and other activities as a result of this class.
In addition to a three credit hour course, First Class offers faculty/staff mentoring and peer mentoring for students. Having someone, a specific person, that you can go to for assistance or guidance is really helpful for new students as they learn all about college and campus life.
