Hello future college student, congratulations on making it to the college you choose. Since you just entered into this new experience, you probably have questions that haven’t been answered as of yet. My name is Luis Tobon, and I’m a college student over at Miami Dade College. I’m here to offer you advice on what you may end up experiencing during your time at your college. Here are a few things that can help you in regards to classes.
Most colleges open registration at least two months before, so there are no excuses for registering on time. If possible, sign up for many scholarships and financial aid as possible. Most colleges are required to assist you with mainly grants, which you don’t need to pay back, and loans, which you do need to pay back in time. The earlier you apply, the greater chance you have to reap the rewards. First come, first serve.
If you have a friend who is in the same college as you, you already have an advantage over a majority of people. They can help you make your time at your college a lot earlier. The last piece of advice I can offer is time. I can’t tell you how to do it. It is something you have to figure out for yourself. Usually trial and error is the best way to go about it. Experiment and manage your time so you can make the most out of your college life. Good luck to achieving your future goals.
