New Start - What students say

"It felt wonderful to have my earlier academic performance 'forgiven'. Thanks to the New Start program, I was able to earn a GPA that was reflective of my abilities, not one based on my difficulties."
- Donna, Special Education student

"New Start has allowed me to begin a new life towards a satisfying career. Growing up and seeing life for what it is has made me a firm believer that a higher education is the only way."
- Natasha, Criminal Justice student

"I was afraid that my low GPA would keep me from reaching my goal of transferring to a 4-year university. The New Start program allows my GPA to show what I really can achieve, and will achieve."
- Bridgett, Biology student
