Develop Study Skills

College courses present a great challenge to most freshman students. Not to mention it can be difficult to study effectively while managing changes in your social life. Therefore, developing effective study habits will often determine a student's success in college. If possible, work with other students in your classes. Start your own study group or see if one already exists on campus. Many colleges have a learning center that offers study skills and strategies.

If possible, take college prep classes in high school. If you already have good study habits, the transition from high school to college will be easier.
