» Tips for College Students

Here, we've collected a few tips to help you adjust to academic life at a major university. You'll find that the university atmosphere differs sharply from what you were familiar with in high school or even a two-year college or smaller four-year institution.

This is a great place to start yourself on your path to academic success. Remember, our Academic Coaches and Supplemental Instructions (SI) Leaders are also wonderful resources for additional assistance and one-on-one help—and if you determine that you need tutoring assistance, please consult our Tutoring@UT online database to find tutors in your subject area.
