A Second Chance at Life through ASU Online

Via ASU Now

For non-traditional students, Arizona State University’s online programs can provide the perfect pathway to a better future. In English major Curtis Gocken’s case, that pathway was also a fast-track: within 14 months, he has managed to complete 68 course credits, all while maintaining a 3.9 GPA. But his relationship with school wasn’t always so positive.

Struggling with addiction and a lack of motivation, Gocken cut his first college career short when he dropped out of the University of Pittsburgh after just a year and a half. It took many more years of odd-jobs, the support of his family and friends, some time in rehab, and the discovery of ASU Online, for Gocken to find the drive to turn his life around.

He transferred from Crafton Hills Community College in 2013 after he decided that the traditional campus experience wasn’t helping him reach his goals. When he heard about ASU’s highly-regarded online English program, he knew it was the right fit, and committed himself to studying like it was his full-time job.

Taking advantage of the asynchronous format and the opportunity for self-paced study it provides, Gocken blazed through the program. He knew that ASU Online wasn’t just another opportunity to earn a degree, but a new lease on life. His focus, combined with academic support from ASU, helped him finally earn his Bachelor of the Arts.
