JumpStart Your Learning: Transitioning to University

Learning Goal of this Tutorial

Transitioning to University


Learning Goal
The goal of this tutorial is to help you recognize the differences between being a high school student and an academic scholar at a university, and the meaning of being an active participant of a scholarly community.

Learning Charter Pursuit
To actively engage in the learning process

Our Learning Charter outlines the commitments and responsibilities you have as a student.
This commitment requires that students be willing to learn independently, experientially, and collaboratively with other students, as appropriate to their learning outcomes; to engage in self-evaluation and reflection, and to take personal responsibility for their learning.1
