Not Your High School Science Class
Without doubt, college science courses are going to cover more material and be more demanding than your high school science classes. Fortunately, there are lots of resources at UNT and the UNT Libraries to help you make the adjustment. The pages under the College Biology tab describe selected resources to start you on your way to academic success: College Expectations, Study Skills, and Test-taking Skills.
UNT has many services to help you succeed in all your courses. You probably heard about them about at orientation, but here's a refresher list.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) Program
The SI Program at the Learning Center provides tutors for BIOL 1710. Talk to your instructor to find out the tutors' study session and office hours for your section.
The Learning Center also provides an Online Tutoring Program, which includes biology tutoring up to the 3000 course level. Make an appointment or drop in online for a chat.
Support programs at the Learning Center include "Learning 101" and "Speed Reading."
UNT Writing Lab

Everyone gets overwhelmed by college sometimes. Don't forget the nice people at Counseling Services who are there to help when you're feeling down.
