Study Skills 

We know that each NCMC student brings a unique set of circumstances to college, but many students are challenged by adapting to a collegiate learning environment.  The counseling department can assist with this adjustment and aid  success in college by helping students discover their learning styles, improve study skills, become better time managers, and improve test taking skills.

Learning to use time management well is often a challenge for college students and can impact everything from stress levels and test performance to staying well.  Some things to consider include using a planner, scheduling study time, reviewing regularly, develop a prioritized “To Do” list,  and learn to say “No”.  We would be glad to schedule an appointment with you to discuss adjusting to college and you may want to check out the following links for more ideas about these topics.
