Freshman Seminar/College Success Courses

Many Associate of Science and Associate of Applied Science degrees at TVCC require at least one of TVCC's freshman seminar/college success courses - specifically FWR 101 (Natural Resources Seminar, 1 credit), Ag 207 (Ag Seminar, 1 credit), HDEV 112 (Freshman Seminar, 1 credit), or HDEV 120 (College Success, 3 credits). Additionally, incoming freshmen students pursuing the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer Degree (AAOT) are encouraged to take HDEV 112 or HDEV 120 as an elective course.

These courses are designed to assist first-time freshmen students entering college with the transition to the higher education environment. They examine individual student needs, create long-term academic plans, teach college success skills, introduce college resources and expectations, and explore career opportunities.
