TIME MANAGEMENT

As a college student you gain more independence, but, there is less structure for you to follow, you don't have your parents or teachers telling you what needs to be done. Using your unstructured time wisely will be the key to your academic success.

Three Ways To Plan, Plan, Plan Your Time Effectively

Plan the entire semester

A semester calendar will give you an overview of important dates and deadlines.

How to set up your schedule:

  • Look at each course syllabus/outline
  • Block all class and lab times
  • Add all exams and assignment due dates
  • Divide exams/assignments into smaller parts and work backwards from due dates to schedule time to work on each component

Tip: Use a dry erase 12-month wall calendar to plot out your semester, hang the calendar on a wall by your desk - you will always be reminded of approaching due dates.

Create a two-week schedule

A two-week academic planner will give you a detailed picture of each week’s activities on one page.

Step One:

  • Block time for routine activities: meals, sleep, exercise, social activities, etc.
  • Set up blocks of study time
