The academic prep course will teach students foundational skills: how to clearly write answers and essays, how to recognize and avoid plagiarism, and how to approach the semester, class assignments, and professors for academic success.

These skills are building blocks to learning at a college level, but they are not always taught clearly. If you haven’t used them in a while or want to be more confident, please attend. No homework will be assigned. For any questions, please email hswartho@walshcollege.edu.
