ensuring success for commuters
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
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.
