Learning Strategies for College Success Course

Rinella staff member presenting EDT110 materialThe Rinella Learning Center offers a two-credit hour course entitled Learning Strategies for College Success which is designed to help students develop greater awareness of their thought processes, study behaviors, and learning strategies. Topics for the course include metacognition, time management, test-taking strategies, anxiety and stress management, critical reading strategies, and a variety of other academic support topics.

To register for the course, students must first meet with a Learning Specialist to determine if the course is appropriate for their situation. Students who may ultimately benefit from the course frequently state, "I never really had to study in high school," or "I never developed strong study skills." Students may not register for the course through conventional course registration; they can only be added to the course after meeting with a Learning Specialist.

Learning Strategies for College Success is a graded course - this means that, like any other course, prompt and regular attendance is expected, as well as completion of course readings, essays, and other assignments.

The course begins during the third week of the semester (the first two weeks of classes are reserved for getting acclimated to your class schedule).
