Preparing for the differences between the high school and college workloads is one of the most underrated aspects of making that most important transition. Similar to developing a study plan, the best way to begin the preparation is to do research: talk to older students, professors, and family members who have been through college. Get their perspectives on what the workload is like in college. Then, create a plan. Develop a study routine. If students start out staying on top of their work, they’ll be better able to manage throughout the next four years.
