University Readiness for VLC Graduates and Alumni

For VLC students and alumni (where an assessment is available), strengths and weaknesses are addressed in the context of university readiness or support. An individualized program is prepared based on discussion with the client and faculty knowledge of the learner over time. Both generalized preparation and specific needs are addressed. At the student’s request, course support can be extended into the school year as long as needed.

The VLC Signature Programs and Tool Kit are reviewed and set in the context of the new needs in the college and university classrooms.

Basic skill enhancement in reading with understanding, in clear written responses in projects and tests, and in advanced math skills are available and can be included in the individualized program.

In addition, because post-secondary education delivery is often taught through the large class lecture, effective listening, note-taking and information gathering skills are also taught.

In other words, VLC students are dynamically and effectively coached to be successful students at the new level of education.

Emotional and psychological challenges that present themselves in this new and very different setting are discussed, and students can have an ongoing dialogue about these important factors with coaches and mentors who are very aware of the university context and culture.
