Most college class- es have fewer than 30 students; however, classes can have anywhere from 15 to more than 200 students. More emphasis on tests and less busywork All instructors assign work to be done outside of class, but homework grades often make up only a small portion of a student’s grade. In many cases, the midterm, a term paper, and/or the final exam make up most of a student’s final grade. More freedom and more responsibility In college, you have a lot of freedom. No one checks to see if you’re going to class, and no one asks if you’re doing your assignments. You are respon- sible for your own academic progress. Colleges have academic standards that students must meet, so students must maintain a certain grade point average in order to stay enrolled. Less time in class and more independent study College students spend about half as much time in class as high school students, but they spend more time studying on their own. College stu- dents generally spend about two hours doing homework and studying for every hour they spend in class. What to Expect in College College is very different from high school. Here are some of the things that you can expect to find in college. PART II College Life
