One thing that you may end up learning the hard way is to make sure you submit everything before the deadline. I am not talking assignments; however, that is true for that as well. I am talking about school deadlines.
One important thing to know is when your payments are due. One thing about college is that it is expensive and most likely, you will be paying off small amounts at a time. You do not want to be late making a payment as you can be dropped from your classes or a late fee will be added.
Second thing to stay on top of is class sign up dates. You want to know when you are able to sign up as classes may fill quickly. You will need to sign up for certain classes each semester and you do not want to fall behind because you were unable to sign up for classes on time.
Now this might be the most important thing for you or it could be the least, housing deadlines. If you are going to be staying at home or renting an apartment, this does not apply to you; however, for those living in dorms, it does. You may want a specific dorm and if you do not sign up in time, you may not get it. If you do not care which dorm you get, you may miss out on the chance if dorms fill up. You never know if dorms at your school are going to be completely filled or not. You can never know, so best thing to do is make sure that you are on time.
Don’t worry if this may seem stressful. Trust me, while you are at college, you learn this quickly and it becomes easier to remember. College has many deadlines so just make sure that you know when they are, and figure out how to complete them on time.
