 Part of your GMC education is developing and refining the ability to critically analyze your situation and progress toward a solution. You are, and should be, the first person to judge your standing in your classes. If you have difficulty, seek help as soon as possible from :

  1. Your professor
  2. Your advisor
  3. Academic Support Services - ENROLL in the ACADEMIC SUCCESS PROGRAM
  4. Faculty Chairpersons
  5. Academic Dean

Make use of the services provided in the Sibley Cone Library on the Milledgeville Campus. Tutoring is available in ZMH 122; Monday-Thursday 8 am - 9 pm and on Friday 8 am - 2 pm  and is available for any subject. Computer systems are available for reference, career research, and tutorials. At the DLCs, services are offered at announced locations.

Treat pursuit of your educational goal like a job. You must work at developing a good routine, interpersonal skills, critical analysis skills, a system of how to get help, solutions to problems, how to anticipate potential problems, and how and when to have fun.

P.S. You donít need to have problems to make use of all the support services; they may help you improve your ability to make that top grade.

Important Reminders

Course Load
Choose your courses according to academic need, study requirements, time restrictions, and Grade Point Average (GPA). Meet with your advisor to determine the most reasonable schedule.

Time
Life demands time management. The successful person is one who learns to control time rather than be controlled by time. Study assigned material before the class so that you are prepared to respond with some knowledge. Students should expect to devote approximately 3 hours per credit hour of enrollment to class and study time.  Therefore to learn and be successful in a five-hour class, a student should spend approximately 15 hours per week attending class and studying outside of class. Set priorities for study and class work.

Help
Get the help you need at the time you need it. Donít wait until the end of the quarter to ask for help. Make use of the facilities at GMC and the Community. Don't be shy, you are expected to need help!

Control
Take control of your life and your success. Manage yourself before you are managed by circumstances that you could have changed.

Now
Many times we live in the past by making excuses or we live in the future by making big plans. You should be living in the ďnow.Ē Donít put off doing what you can do now. Learning is comparing the present with the past and planning action toward future goals. Don't hide in the past or daydream about a future that may never be realized. Live in the present shaped by the past and directed toward a future goal
