Going to college can be exciting, as well as stressful. During this time it's important to learn a few things before going and getting a higher education. Included in this article are a few things that you can do to make your time at college a lot easier to deal with.

Always plan time to study and keep a set schedule for doing so. After you have received your class schedule, it is best to schedule your study time. With a class and study schedule mapped out, you can create the kind structure that will help you get through each day and maximize your time.

Apply for grants, scholarships and loans promptly. Sometimes the deadlines are very early in a student's high school senior year. This money can be very important. Find a solid system for managing your deadlines and submit your applications in a timely manner.

Avoid studying for big college exams the night before by taking in a lot of caffeine or other stimulants. While these things can keep you up and able to study for longer, they will make you very tired in the morning. After using chemical stimulants for a while, you will need more and more and that can be damaging to your overall physical and mental health.

Keep your loans to a minimum. Look into scholarships, grants and special programs to help pay for college so that you won't have a lot of debt hanging over your head when you graduate. For many students, loan checks seem like free money while they are in school--but once you get out they become an obligation you may regret.

You should seriously consider if having a car at college is the best idea. Parking could be an issue if you are living in the city. You can also have a hard time with other expenses if you're not employed.

If you are going to be attending college soon and you value your privacy, you may be better off living off-campus. While living in a dorm is much cheaper than having an apartment, you are sacrificing your personal space. If money is an issue for you, search for a studio or one bedroom apartment.

Do not crack under the stress of selecting or declaring a major right away. Some professors might try and draw you into their department early on, as the more students they have the more job security they have. Never rush major decisions, Councils and Committees do what is right for you, not anyone else.

You should always keep up on a routine if you are in college. If you do not do this it will be far too easy just to skip out on study sessions. You need to be self disciplined and if it is study time, do it. Do not skip out so you can go out to a party with your friends. There is plenty of time for that.

Attend every class unless you are sick. Unlike when you were in high school, most of the time you are not required to attend all of your classes. However, if you stay home you may miss valuable information or the opportunity to meet other students and get to know your teachers.

Get a schedule. A schedule is something that can really help you, and that goes beyond just your class schedule. Think about having a regular routine about when you eat, shower, and do your homework. This routine will keep things in line for you and help you not to be so stressed out.

To get textbooks inexpensively look at a variety of online and offline textbook stores. College textbooks can be extremely expensive; however, with the abundance of places selling both used and new textbooks, you can keep within your budget. The college bookstore also offers textbooks for lease which can save you money.

Avoid handing in the first draft of your paper. You need to take the time to properly revise it. Rather than just proofreading your paper, write out another draft. You should edit the second paper and then make changes. Thus, you can be certain that every key point has been included.

Making it all the way through college is quite a challenge, but once you have achieved it, you are well on your way in life. Use the advice of this article and other valuable sources you find along the way. Achieving that diploma is one of the best things you will ever do for yourself!
