What are the differences between high school and college?
First and foremost, the level of course difficulty is very different between college and high school academic work. You may not spend as much time in the college classroom as you do in high school, but you will find the work to be more demanding with more homework, reading, and independent work. College requires self-discipline and self-motivation. For every hour that you spend in the classroom, you should expect to spend 2-3 hours per week on work outside the classroom.
