GNED 100 Mandatory Course

The Adult Academic Success Seminar (GNED 100) is a required two-credit course which fulfills a Montclair State University general education requirement, which must be taken during the first semester of enrollment. This course is designed to ease a student’s transition into a successful and enjoyable college experience. This course offers information about campus services, events, people, and places. GNED 100 will also provide students with the academic tools necessary for success at the college level.

Some of the topics that will be covered include:

  • Time Management
  • Note Taking and Study Skills
  • Journal and Research Writing Techniques
  • Stress Management
  • Goal Setting

Perhaps most important of all, this seminar course will give students the opportunity to meet regularly with other Adult Learners. Together with the instructor, students will have the opportunity to discuss ideas, thoughts and concerns regarding their academic journey. The seminar becomes “home base” for the first semester adjustment period by providing group identification and support.
