After a long school year, summer is finally here. Fun, adventure and relaxation are on the minds of students everywhere, and chances are you've earned it. Summer is also the perfect time to set yourself up for success in fall.
Maybe you want to take advantage of guaranteed transfer. Or you'd like to get involved on a campus sports team. Whatever your goals, here are a few ways you can use summer to get ahead for the fall semester.
1. Take a summer class
What better way to get a jump on the school year than by taking a summer class? Get a taste of college or get one step closer to your degree. You can make the most of your summer and get set for fall with classes at a local campus or online.
2. Explore new opportunities
Each UW Colleges campus has plenty of ways to get involved. Sports teams, student organizations, and research opportunities await in fall. Check out campus websites to get an idea of what you'd like to dive into come fall semester.
3. Talk to advisors and faculty
Have you enrolled for classes? Are you still thinking about applying? Campus advisors can be a great resource. Get in touch with advisors if you'd like to enroll or talk to professors about their classes to find out which ones would be best for you.
4. Set your fall semester goals
Get ready for fall by deciding what you'd like to accomplish during the semester. Whether you want to earn a specific GPA, decide on a major or get a work-study position, it all starts with setting your goals. A break before the semester begins is the perfect time to start.
5. Think about your next step
It's never too early to think about what comes next. Will you take advantage of our Guaranteed Transfer program? Do you want to pursue a BAAS or collaborative Bachelor's degree? Are you planning on working after earning an associate degree? Get ready for fall by thinking about where you're going and how we can help you get there.
