Choose a college
To succeed as an online college student, you have to be motivated and driven. A self-starter. Great at time management and determined to succeed.
And when you do succeed, the rewards are many: a better job, a promotion, a new career maybe. Perhaps a raise. Definitely the satisfaction of a goal achieved and hard work paying off.
This is the big-picture look at what it takes to succeed—and why it's worth it. But in the day-to-day work of
a student striving through a rigorous, online, competency-based program like WGU's 55 bachelor's and master's degree programs, there are all kinds of little tips that students learn to make the process of studying smoother, more efficient, and more effective—and there are all kinds of ways students reward themselves for the little victories along the way to the big prize.
