Study Tips for Several Subjects

How do Students Succeed?

  • They make their studies their first priority. They intend to succeed.
  • They cultivate their enjoyment of learning and growing intellectually. It’s not a chore.
  • They study a minimum of two hours for every hour they are in class, and understand that success in their courses requires significant effort and engagement with course content both in class and outside of class.
  • They take responsibility for seeking out the assistance they need to succeed—course professors, faculty advisors, academic support services, counseling services, tutors, etc.
  • They manage their time well, enabling them to include a variety of outside interests, plus some “down time” in each week’s schedule.
  • They rarely, if ever, “cut” a class. They notify their professors immediately if they are ill or must miss a class, and make arrangements to complete missed work.
  • They prepare for each class and do not get behind; they stay on top of their assignments.
  • They work with fellow students in study groups.
  • Except in cases of extreme need, they limit jobs to 10-15 hours per week.
