Tips for Transitioning from High School to College:
Creating a support system. Utilize resident hall coordinators and resident advisors, academic advisors, orientation leaders and roommate.
Showing empathy. Understand and share in your feelings about leaving home.
Creating realistic expectations. Use a planner and schedule time for homework assignments, work and attending classes as well as athletic practices and games if applicable.
Tougher academic standards. Your student will have deadlines, assignments and tests and they are all listed in the class syllabus. It is up to the student to read the syllabus and stay on top of deadlines. Utilize tutors and meet with professors during their office hours to get help.
They will make mistakes. Be resilient. You have to bounce back from a failed quiz, losing your meal card or oversleeping and missing a class.
