It's a new college year, and whether you're a freshman, sophomore, junior or senior, you want it to be a good year.

A college campus, however, is full of distractions β€” distractions that can affect your study habits and class attendance.

But there are simple strategies to help you become a more successful student and make the grade.

1. Prioritize Your Life

Whether it's your time or your homework, it's important to prioritize your life so important tasks are completed first.

When there’s a lot on your plate, you can easily become overwhelmed and overworked.2

If you learn how to prioritize, you’re able to get everything on your to do list completed.

Create a schedule, whether it's with an old-fashioned day planner or the calendar on your smartphone or tablet.

Keep a record of homework and projects, and assign time limits to avoid spending too much time on a task.2

2. Get Organized

Not only should you prioritize your time, you need to get organized.

If you don't have a system for keeping up with paperwork and books, you could waste a lot of time looking for your belongings.

It doesn’t matter if you live at home, in a dorm or an off-campus apartment, make sure you keep your study area de-cluttered and organized.

This can improve concentration, motivation and it’ll be easier to locate items.

3. Don’t Take on Too Much

Understandably, you want to finish college as soon as possible.

But while you might be tempted to take five or six classes a semester, be realistic with your time and mental capacity.

Juggling a large course load can get you through college sooner, but it’ll also leads to burnout, and you may not be able to devote as much time to studying, which can affect your grade.

Be sensible and don't overwhelm yourself.
