Tips for academic excellence

Reduce your course load.
Students who reduce their course load by even one course often see significant improvements in their other course grades.

Attend class regularly.
Class attendance is directly related to student success.

Improve study habits and skills.
Poor grades do not always indicate academic ability, but are often a sign of ineffective or poorly developed study habits/skills.

Seek help from your professor or teaching assistant.
Get the help you need to understand course content and expectations.

Meet regularly with your academic advisor.
Your academic advisor can help you develop, modify and maintain a plan for academic success.
