Low-skilled community college students should take classes that teach study skills, time management and “college knowledge,” according to a recommendation from the California Community Colleges says Success Task Force. Their theory is confirmed by a considerable body of research. Students who complete study and life skills courses were more likely to earn a community college credential, transfer to the state university system, or still be enrolled in college after five years, according to a 2006 study conducted by the Florida Department of Education. A later study showed a “positive relationship between taking a student life skills course and various student success indicators — credential completion, persistence, and transfer.”
