Tips to Help You Succeed in College
You have decided to go to college—excellent decision. A college education can increase your opportunities for success. However, you will find the college learning environment different from that of high school.
Here are some things to remember:
- College is less structured and will require you to use more self-monitoring skills than you needed in high school. There will be no teachers or parents making decisions for you.
- Be prepared to face an increased level of academic competition and to have less contact with your professors.
- You will be the person responsible for your actions, your learning, your successes and your failures as a college student.
Are you a student who has a disability?
If this is the case, you will be dealing with a new and more complex process of external support than ever before. It is vital that you arm yourself with a well thought-out plan and strategies for success long before that first day of class.
