Success in College

As a student, you have the basic responsibility for your own success: our responsibility is to assist you in reaching your educational goals.

Set goals and evaluate them

Ask: "Why am I here?  What do I want to do? Where do I see myself in four years?  What are my long-term goals?"

  • Have a clear understanding of where you are
  • Make a reasonable plan involving realistic goals
  • Develop a realistic time frame for reaching your goals

Know what it takes to be successful

  • Attend class regularly
  • Complete all assignments by the due date
  • Participate fully in class
  • Schedule regular study time outside of class
