How to succeed in your 3-week courses

Attend Class!

Due to the intensive and integrative style of the 3-week courses, it is important to set the goal of attending every class. Missing one class is similar to missing a traditional week of school. Be prepared to engage deeply with your course topic!

Expect Homework

Be ready to hit the ground, running! You should expect to have readings, papers, or group work after each class. While you will have more time outside of the classroom, you should anticipate spending time completing classroom assignments throughout the 3-week block.

International Student Arrival Information

Supporting Your Student's Adjustment

An adjustment process is normal and often looks like this.

Your student may call you one day and say this is the best place ever and the next tell you they want to leave.

Listen to them and ask questions to encourage them to talk about what they are thinking and feeling.

If they are struggling, encourage them to talk to someone and to get involved in campus activities.

Remind them they are not alone.
