Preparing For Class
It is recommended that a student spend at least 2-3 hours of study time for every one hour spent in class.
Since most freshmen take 12-15 hours, the amount of time spent in outside study will be between 24-36 hours per week.
As a comparison, we encourage students to think of their course load and study time as a full-time job. This gives them a perspective of the amount of time they need to invest in their studies.
Difficulty with a class
Students should visit with their instructor after classes begin and anytime they experience difficulty with a course. Many new students are reluctant to seek help because they are intimidated or because they have never needed assistance with academics before. However, it is crucial that they do so. Cameron’s faculty welcomes the opportunity to help each student succeed. Encourage your student to visit with their instructor during office hours or via e-mail for advice on a regular basis.
In addition to faculty, the Office of Teaching and Learning coordinates a number of academic support facilities on the Lawton campus, many of them dedicated to offering help with specific content area courses that students often take as part of the general education curriculum. Office of Teaching and Learning Tutoring Facilities are free and open to all students. More information about Tutoring services can be found here.
