    Plan B

    • What is your plan if your primary mode of transportation breaks down or is unavailable?

    • Start planning now:

      • Do research on bus routes, take a trial run before classes

        • Check out Zimrideand carpool at least once

        • Have faculty phone number/email entered in your phone

  • Get Motor Assistance Plan (i.e. AAA).


  • Ensuring Success for Commuters

    • Attend CAP, CAB, OnTheGo, other campus events;

    • Interact with faculty;

    • Meet other students in your classes;

    • Give yourself a break between classes;

    • Be focused on Time Management;

    • Utilize campus resources: Library, Student Success Center, Writing Center - you paid for it!


    Beware of Transfer Shock

    • Your GPA does NOT transfer.

    • This is not like your previous college or university – do not assume UNCG does things the same way.

    • Students who use the Student Success Center, Writing Center, and Speaking Center are more likely to do better in classes and have higher GPAs.

    • Adult students – don’t “parent” your traditional aged peers.

    • If you are a transfer student coming into a program in Junior year – ask about department/faculty protocols.

    • Transfers – hold on to your Transcripts.
