Sample Student Welcome Letter. January 1, Dear Class Members: Welcome to our online “CLASS NAME”! We should have an interesting time this term.
Welcome to the 2019-2020 academic year!
I am counting on you to make this your best year yet at Berkeley College. We are here to support you every step of the way.
For those of you returning to Berkeley, we are glad to have you back as you continue your journey to the graduation stage. For those new students who are just joining our community, we encourage you to make the most of your time here. Your college experience will be what you make it, and your opportunities will only be limited by the limits you place on yourself.
As you start a new academic year, take advantage of the many services available to help you achieve your full potential. The Center for Academic Success offers many programs to keep you on the road to graduation and professional success, such as tutoring and workshops on improving time management, note-taking and test preparation. Remember that the Library and Career Services are here to help, whether you are an online or on-site student.
I encourage you to get involved, to participate in student government, and to take part in the array of opportunities and initiatives hosted by Student Development and Campus Life throughout the year. During the year, you can also join me for a Chat and Chew session – an opportunity for me to learn more about you, your plans for your future, and to answer your questions.
Supporting you is central to our mission at Berkeley College. We are here to guide you as you become the best version of yourself.
Remember to make it a great year. I will see you soon.
Michael J. Smith
President of Berkeley College

Welcome to North Carolina Central University. If you are a first-time freshman, the University College will be your academic home away from home for the next two years. If you are a transfer student, this is your academic home away from home for the next eight weeks to one year.
The University College is designed to provide consistent, high-quality and appropriate academic advising, monitoring, mentoring, nurturing and coaching to ensure your academic and personal success. We believe that with all of the support services available, including tutoring and Supplemental Instruction, no student should earn any grade below a B. Even so, your academic success depends on how well you take responsibility for your own education, including taking initiative to achieve academic excellence. It is up to you to take advantage of these services as soon and as often as you need them.
To assist in your transition to the university, you will be assigned an academic advisor to guide you to your destination - Graduation. You and your advisor will review and sign an advising syllabus indicating what you need to do to be a successful and competent student. Your assigned advisor and other advisors in the University College will be available to you on a daily basis, and you will be required to see them regularly. In addition, your advisor will receive regular progress reports from each of your professors for the first eight weeks of classes. We want you to be successful and we will do all that we can to ensure that you are successful – but you must do your part as well.
At the end of your sophomore year, you will take part in a comprehensive assessment and clearance regarding other requirements from the Dean of the University College. When this is successfully completed, you will transition to the department of your major discipline.
We look forward to supporting your academic and personal success at North Carolina Central University!
William Moultrie, J.D., Interim Dean
