Easy Ways to Help Improve Your College Success

  • Read the syllabus
    The syllabus contains a wealth of information. Carefully read through it before your class starts and highlight important items.
  • Use a planner
    This is the best way to stay organized. When you get your syllabus at the beginning of the semester, enter ALL assignments from each syllabus in the planner. Every weekend review upcoming assignments to allow you to better plan your week. Add personal plans as well to ensure sufficient study time.
  • Attend class
    You are paying for classes in either money, time, or both. This is the best way to retain information and stay on top of your course work and deadlines.
  • Download Outlook Application/Check Ship Email
    Downloading the Outlook app on your phone to sync your Ship email account is the best way to ensure you don’t miss important information. Students should check their Ship email at least 3 times a day.
