What is VSU’s YOUSucceed online option?

YOUSucceed is an alternative to the credit hour-based system of credentialing. Student progress is based on demonstration of proficiency and/or mastery as measured through assessments and/or through application of credit for prior learning. In competency-based education programs, time is the variable and student competency mastery is the focus, rather than a fixed-time model where students achieve varying results. You will receive personalized support from your Instructional Leader and Student Success Coach. You will master competencies and demonstrate your knowledge through rigorous mastery assessments.
