Seldom check homework or monitor daily work Often lecture and rarely teach you the textbook Require library research Challenge you to integrate information from a variety of sources Synthesis (putting it all together) is different from just memorizing Other Ways College and High School are different…:  Other Ways College and High School are different… Freedom In high school most of your time is structured for you and there are many limits set by parents, teachers, and other adults- buildings are monitored.

Even if you are not complete with assignments or don’t like it, always hand your paper/project in on time. If you do not understand, ask Instructor if s/he would explain. Ways To Impress Your Professors (con’t)…:  Ways To Impress Your Professors (con’t)… Learn to use a word processing program in the Support Center. Corrections are easier, work looks neater, and you can make corrections the instructor suggests easily. Always go to your instructor first when there is a “hassle” with your work.

How To Figure Your Grades 2003- 2004 New Student Workshop :  How To Figure Your Grades 2003- 2004 New Student Workshop First look at the course number. The magic number is the middle number. It tells you how many credits the course is worth. English 131- 3 credits! Slide25:  If you receive an A in a 3 credit course it is worth more than an A in a one credit course. An F in a four credit course hurts you more than an F in a two credit course. How? Slide26:  How Does That Work? Quality Points Scale A+ = 4 C+ = 2.5 A = 4 C = 2 B + = 3.5 D+ = 1.5 B = 3 D = 1 F = 0 Cum Laude 3.5 to 3.74 Magna cum Laude 3.75 to 3.89 Summa Cum Laude 3.90 to 4.00 Dean’s list 3.30 and no F’s See catalog pgs. 133 - 146 Slide27:  Take the number of credits for each course, multiply them by the quality points of the grade you’re getting, add them all up, and divide by the total number of credits. That is your GPA. Here’s how it works… Slide28:  Course name and number grade/quality point credits quality points English 131 F (0) X 3 = 0 Math 131 B (3) X 3 = 9 D and K Mgmt. 132 C (2) X 3 = 6 Product ID 111 D+ (1.5) X 1 = 1.5 Professional Cookery 121 D (1) X 2 = 2 Professional Cookery 122 C+ (2.5) X 2 = 5 Service Mgmt. Seminar 111 A (4) X 1 = 4 Culinary Seminar 100 P (0) X 0 = 0 __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Total 15 27.5 27.5 divided by 15 equals 1.83 GPA for the first semester This GPA will not get you suspended, but it will not let you graduate either unless you pull it up. You need a 2.0 GPA overall to graduate, even if you passed all your courses Slide29:  Of course every semester you get more courses and they all add into the equation. If you get a poor GPA the first semester, it will affect your GPA all along and can be hard to recover from. Slide30:  Standards of Academic Progress Total hours Probation – Suspension - attempted GPA below GPA below 1-20.5 1.75 1.00 21-39.5 1.90 1.50 40-59.5 2.00 1.75 60+ 2.00 1.90 See catalog pg. 136
