  • 4. At CWU Des Moines your success is a priority for us ..some of the top tips for success here, from faculty and staff are: Be realistic about the amount of time you will need to be successful in your course work when working and managing family activities. More and more it seems that students are over committed and as a result suffer stress and break downs. Online classes are not less work. Read the text. You are required to purchase textbooks and assigned other readings for a reason. Be sure and read them and apply what you learned through that reading to your exams and other assigned work. Utilize the writing center for improving writing, study and analysis skills. You may be taking tests that require essay questions, if you have never taken an test based on essay questions you may want to ask the faculty for some tips. Essay tests require that you write well and are analytical. Google and Wikipedia are not scholarly resource tools. Be critical of the resources you find online. Use the resources we have available - advising, career counselor, library, writing center etc. Be aware of deadlines- registration, drop dates, payments due etc. Get to know people, other students, staff and faculty. Get involved in student leadership, clubs and organizations. Go to career fairs. Get involved with Student Leadership and other clubs and activities.
  • 5. At CWU Des Moines your success is a priority for us ..some of the top tips for success here, from faculty and staff are: You are responsible for your success. Attend every class, show up on time, turn assignments in on time. Get to know other students and set up peer study groups. We are here to help..ask questions! Use the library, the Writing and Math Center. For ever hour you spend in class you will spend two outside of class studying and completing assignments. That can equal 30 hours for 15 credits!
