Strategy for Success
Standard College endeavors to help students avoid academic difficulty. The most successful students attend class regularly, complete and submit assignments in a timely fashion, and seek assistance from instructors, advisors, or the Academic Resource Center at the first signs of trouble. Moreover, students who are successful academically have learned to balance extracurricular activities with academics.
Recommended Study Time
A basic rule for any degree/program is that you want to spend two times the number of hours studying per week as you are in class. Depending on the difficulty level of the course you are taking you may need to study more than the recommended study time.
