Student Success Seminar

A requirement of all Charleston Bridge participants is the completion of a Charleston Bridge Student Success Seminar (CBSSS). The seminar focuses on getting to know the campus, understanding program requirements, becoming familiar with academic best practices, using campus resources and preparing for the next semester.

Students meet bi-weekly with a seminar instructor and peer mentor for 50 minutes on Monday August 27, September 10, September 24, and October 8, 2018 from 5:30-6:20pm. Attendance at the four seminar meetings is mandatory - student attendance is not optional. The seminar instructor and classroom location will be shared with students during summer orientation. Instructors will have available office hours and will meet with students to review midterm grades and a final exam study plan.

The documents for each module and the assignment drop box will be available on August 21, 2018 can be accessed through the MyCharleston student portal and logging into OAKS. Access OAKS by clicking on the acorn icon in the upper right corner of the page. Students will be directed to an OAKS page called My Courses. Click on the course link for the Charleston Bridge student success seminar indicated as CBSSS. 

Students will be expected to review all of the documents posted in the CONTENT section for each module and complete the assignments. Please note that the seminar is monitored and the course instructor will be able to determine if documents have been opened and time is spent reviewing the material for each module.
