Success in college depends on many factors: scholastic attitude, motivation, application of ability, and good study habits. Good study habits are necessary for all students to protect investments of time and money as well as to enable them to achieve educational goals. Every student, regardless of ability, can develop good habits and can devote adequate time to study. The amount of time that must be devoted to out-of-class study varies according to ability and preparation of the student, class load, and the difﬁculty of the subjects taken. Assistance with study skills development is available through coaches and counselors in the Student Support Services and S.T.E.P.S. programs.
