Effective Practices for Nontraditional Students


Shasta College, NEW (Nontraditional Employment for Women) Program

The NEW program at Shasta College is designed to attract more females into nontraditional training programs. Recruitment efforts are targeted to the feeder high schools. College counselors and currently enrolled female nontraditional students conduct outreach and on-campus activities with potential female enrollees. The program also garners the support of the instructors in the areas for which are recruiting. The efforts have resulted in increased nontraditional enrollment.
