Incoming students at Wayland take a BASC (Best Achievement Strategies for College) course that is designed to help them succeed. Students who have declared a major will take a discipline-specific class with their needs in mind. Courses are also available for students who have not yet declared a major. Students will connect with faculty, be encouraged to focus on their goal of earning a college degree, and learn about services available to help them succeed. The goal of the BASC course is to make the transition to college a little less stressful for students and their families.
