Seven Keys for Academic SUCCESS

1. Study with and Get to Know Other Students


2. Use a Study Schedule and Time Management Strategies

3. Come to Every Class Session

  • Commit yourself to learning and growing every day as a student. 
    • Be positive about your journey through college.  Whenever you think to yourself that you cannot succeed at something in your coursework, say to yourself, “Yes I can!”
    • Review a PowerPoint Presentation on “Hard Work” created by English instructor Kathleen Founds (listed as KFPP below)

4. Communicate with Your Instructor

  • Go to office hours listed in the college directory. Your chance to talk with instructors one-on-one.  Your instructor wants you to be successful.
  • Email your instructor.  Remember to keep communication professional and respectful; review the syllabus/assignment before you write the email.

5. Expect to Use Textbooks and Readings

7. Support Services Are Here for You - Free!
