Welcome to Project Succeed!
Did you know that almost 50% of the students who enroll in college do not complete a degree? One big reason is many students do not understand the college system and the action they need to take to be successful. Project Succeed is a TRiO program funded by the Department of Education to provide eligible students with extra help. Our staff members and peer mentors are committed to helping you navigate and succeed in college. We’ll help you answer your questions before you even know what they are.
What we offer:
- Lunch and Learn workshops and one-on-one appointments for you to learn about Study Skills, Life Strategies, Money Management, Career Choices, and/or Transferring to a Four Year university.
- Equipment Loaner Program. We have laptop computers, calculators, and audio recorders that you can check out for the entire semester.
- On and off campus events. We call these cultural events. This year we will be taking trips to Yellowstone National Park, Thermopolis Hot Springs, Shows in Billings, and so much more. There is no cost to you; Project Succeed pays for your meals, tickets, and transportation.
- A study room for Project Succeed students located in the Student Success Center.
- Peer Mentors to help you learn about Northwest College, and how to succeed in classes.
- A Math Mentor to help you with Math 0900, 0920, and 0930.
- An English Mentor to help you understand your assignments and offer suggestions for your papers before your turn them in.
- Transfer trips to universities. You do not have to be in the transfer process to join us on these trips; we want you to know what opportunities are out there for you. We will pay for your meals, lodging, and transportation, and set up a campus tour, meeting with an admissions representative, and advisor in area of interest.
Project Succeed is a Student Support Services federal TRiO program funded by a continuation grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Additional funding has also been provided by the University of Wyoming’s College Access Challenge Grant to purchase student and staff access to MAP-Works.
