Unlike high school, college is a full time job! Consider this:
- 15 credits = approximately 15 hours in the classroom per week.
- Academic success in 15 credits = 20-30 hours spent on schoolwork outside of the classroom per week.
Schoolwork outside of the classroom includes (but is not limited to):
- studying for quizzes and tests,
- researching and planning for papers,
- critically reading course material (before class),
- meeting with tutors and/or peer study groups,
- going to instructor office hours.
In short, if you want to do well in your college courses, expect to spend between 35-45 hours per week on your courses.
