The First-Year Experience in Two-Year Public Postsecondary Programs: Results of a National Survey

Aims to begin answering these questions questions about how and what activities or practices institutions choose to adopt, how they target their “first-year” services when their programs are shorter-term and the majority of their students embark on nontraditional credentialing pathways, and the main challenges they face in the process. It explores the national landscape of first-year programming and practices at institutions that primarily serve associate degree-seeking students and complements existing studies on the topic by contributing to the documentation of the prevalence and features of first-year practices at two-year institutions.
