How to Prevent Debt

Fact: College Smart® Students are armed with the strategies, skills, and awareness to succeed.

They understand why procrastination and disorganization are deadly. They use their College Smart® Study Strategies to keep up and still have fun.

  1. They are well aware of the much-faster pace of college. They know how to study efficiently to handle the load
  2. They recognize how much needs to be learned — and why cramming won’t work.
  3. They “get” that learning processes must mature each year as courses become more complex. They know that learning is like practicing a sport.
  4. They realize that the days of simple multiple-choice, true-false, or simple matching tests are the things of the past. They need to express themselves in far more complex ways to succeed.
  5. They understand how skills they use in college will become important assets in the workplace. They see how these sough-after skills transfer to the workplace..

College Smart® students become self-taught learners
who know how to go about handling responsibility
and working independently to meet deadlines —

just like in the workplace.
How?

The College Smart® Strategies give students the know-how.

1 out of 3 freshmen frequently report feeling
“overwhelmed by all I had to do.”  Yet they don’t “make time” for work.
