What do successful students do? They plan ahead!
 

Create a semester calendar
Keep a record of when your exams, quizzes, papers, and finals are due.

Plan for study time
1 hour of class time = 2 hours of study time.

Prioritize your time
Don't overextend yourself, it's OK to say no sometimes.

Stay informed
Ask questions and check for student news by way of your student center at my.maricopa.edu, your student email and our social media channels.

Call on Rio Salado's Counseling & Career Services team. A counselor can assist you with personal and educational goals. When should you call?
