Transition & Success

Success in College

The transition to higher education can feel overwhelming at times.  Luckily, there are many programs that provide support with your transition by helping you successfully navigate your college journey.  Additionally, every school has resources and assistance available to students, so always ask for help and seek out support whenever needed.


Support Tips:

  • Connect with academic and financial aid advisers at the college campus.
  • Research and join clubs and other extracurricular activities to build networks and community.
  • Plan your course load with an academic adviser.
  • Take advantage of academic support, such as tutoring and instructor office hours.
  • Avoid having to pay unnecessary fees by remaining mindful of add/drop deadlines for classes, or payment deadlines.
  • Budget accordingly.  This includes everything: tuition, books, housing, meals, fun, transportation, etc.
