LSC Counselors help students clarify educational goals, program/career options, balance credit load with work and family, transfer plans, probation and suspension issues, and educational goals.
Balance Work & School
If you work and go to college, this strategy can prevent you from burning out. It is recommended that you take only 12 credits if you working 20 hours per week and have NOT been on probation. Fewer credits are recommended if you have family commitments, commute over an hour, or other responsibilities.
Manage Your Time
It is recommended that you spend 2 hours of study time for each hour of class time per week. For example, if you have 12 credits, you should allow 24 hours per week for studying (12 x 2 = 24).
