High School Vs. College

High School vs College: Expectations and Differences

Together with current UCCS students, we complied a list of expectations and differences that students might notice change from high school to college.  When entering into the first semester at a university students often have heard of the differences they will see in college but may not make their own changes to adjust to this new academic culture, for example creating a study system, asking for help, advocating for themselves during professor office hours, etc.  UCCS has many places on campus to help with the academic and personal adjustment to college.  Check out the list of differences to get an idea of what a student can expect their college experience to look like.
