College vs. High School


Classes

Classes in High School Classes in College
Bells ring to alert students when class begins. Students bear the burden of getting to class on time.
Each day students proceed from one class to another in succession. Students often have hours between classes and class length can vary throughout the day.
Students spend six hours a day - 30 hours a week in class. Students spend 10 to 15 hours a week in class
Students are provided with textbooks for each class. Students must purchase their own textbooks for each class budgeting $200 to $500 each semester.
Teachers carefully monitor class attendance. Some professors may not take roll, and each determines their own criteria for excessive absences and publishes this in the class syllabus.
Course selection is fairly standard depending on the students' grade in school. Course selection varies greatly depending on a student's major and the year they start college. Attending a SOAR workshop eliminates a lot of the confusion.
