The Scorpion Path: Second Year

In This Section


Students from all backgrounds remain enrolled at NSC, in good academic standing, and with satisfactory progress toward their degrees. They continue to be excited about their learning experience and have a clear sense of the path they need to follow to graduate on time. They have a deeper understanding of NSC’s mission and what makes us unique. They are recognized for their accomplishments after completing their second year and passing the half-way point, and begin to experience the transformation that anchors our definition of student success.
