Time Management Tips
Each three-credit class will take approximately nine hours of your time each week: three hours in lecture and six hours of study. Most adult students attend part-time, taking one or two classes each semester.
Calendars allow you to identify free time and to schedule work time. You may want to use monthly and weekly calendars. Obtain a calendar with large blocks for each day to enter test dates, due dates and important events. Use a weekly planner to schedule times you must go to college, sleep, work, eat and perform necessary family tasks.
