12 credits? is that all? with that light schedule I would guess maybe 20-25 hours a week outside of class should be MORE that enough……

Algebra will probably have homework assignments and in comp 2 you’ll have to write papers. The other two courses won’t have much homework you’ll have to decide how much you need to study though. People say you should plan for about 2 hours for every hour you’re in class. If you’re taking 12 hours then expect to spend 24 hours a week studying.

Back in the olden days, we were told to expect to do 3 hours homework for every hour of credit. However, some classes require more out of classroom reading and others require extensive projects and term papers.

There are no mediocre state colleges. You pick the classes you want for your major and do excellent work and you will get a good education. And, keep up with the news, history, geography, science, medicine, and technology and you will be well informed.

I attended 3 universities as part of my undergraduate work (moved with hb every year) and found no difference between classes taught at satellite schools and the universities.

I was able to get all A’s (but one) in my graduate work at a private university.

If you have a choice of instructors, pick the best who require the most work. Throw yourself into your work. Whenever you miss a question whether asked in class or on a test, study to see why the correct answer was correct and why the wrong answer was wrong (you were confused). Learn the vocabulary of the subject. Look to see how what you learn impacts the real world.
