PRESS for Completion

Northampton Community College is one of 15 colleges nationwide chosen to receive a $100,000 "PRESS for Completion" grant from the Walmart Foundation. "PRESS" stands for Persistence, Retention, and Student Success. NCC is focused on course improvements to two important freshman courses: English I and Introduction to Statistics. A small team is working on each course and will pilot test innovations starting in spring 2013. The innovations emphasize early connections with instructors, early assessment of students' abilities, and a plan and resources to support individual students' success.
