    • The Brilliant Bobcats staff recognizes the complexity of college students' schedules and have crafted this course to be accessible to students who may not have the time to attend our in-person workshops. It is our intention to build the success of our students through the education and application of certain necessary concepts.

      Once the student completes each module, their final assignment will be reviewed by a staff member to provide comments, positive affirmations, and suggestions. However, the student does not have to wait for feedback to move on to the next module.
