College can be overwhelming in all kinds of ways. You're expected to do a lot of things with very limited resources from balancing your time to keeping your grades up. However, academics must e a priority given that your ultimate goal is to graduate. So where's a student to go if he or she needs a little academic help? For you if you're struggling academically, fortunately, most college campuses are set up to provide resources. Not taking advantage of all that your school has to offer is the only mistake you can make. Talk to your professors in all of your classes. Knowing how to talk to them is a lot easier than you might think, even though some professors can be intimidating. And checking in with each of them if you're struggling academically is super important. They also can help connect you with resources that can help you, and not only will they be aware that you are having some difficulties. Letting your professor(s) know that you're having problems earlier is much easier to deal with than trying to explain your struggles after you've failed a class (or two or three ...) in addition to this.

Where to go for help in college

Stop in at the tutoring center. Most campuses have a tutoring center -- and for a reason. You're not the first (and you certainly won't be the last) college student to need help with that O-chem lab report. Stop in and see what resources they make available even in case you are not  sure what your tutoring center offers. You just might be surprised at all that they have for students in need of a little help here and there. Look into a peer tutoring program.Separate from a tutoring center, some schools offer peer tutoring programs. These can be amazing because they 1) hook you up with someone who has been both screened and trained for being an awesome tutor, 2) the person has direct knowledge of what the expectations (and even professors!) are for your specific campus, unlike an online tutoring website, and 3) getting direct, 1-on-1 help can often be the best way to learn and grow as an academic. As soon as you can, see what your institution has to offer and sign up.  Look into hiring a paid tutor. Paid tutors are a great way to go, especially if you're at a school that offers grad. programs. Those accounting graduate students need a little cash and obviously know their stuff, so why not use their knowledge to help yourself after all? Check on bulletin boards (both physical and electronic) for the department or subject you're needing help with or ask your professors if they know of any good tutors you can contact. Finding a reputable online tutoring site might also be a smart way to get some extra help in addition to this. Look into a mentoring program. Sometimes, you don't just need help with that upcoming Shakespeare paper; you need help with college writing, for example, or with managing your time better.
