learners stay on track this school year
As an adult learner, you have a lot on your plate. Adding classes to your already busy schedule requires careful planning and ample diligence to ensure your academic success. So here are seven tips to help you stay on track while earning your college degree.
- Create a strong academic foundation. When you start the semester, make sure you understand your responsibilities as a student. In each class you sign up for, get to know the syllabus and your professor. Understand the academic expectations of your classes and your program, as well as what GPA you have to maintain to stay in good academic standing.
- Be a voracious learner. Take every chance to learn from professors and fellow adult learners, and share your knowledge and experiences with them. One of the greatest assets you have as an adult learner is your life experience, and learning and sharing with others can help you reach your personal and professional goals.
