CONTINUING ACADEMIC SUCCESS 2 Continuing Academic Success Students at the University of Phoenix can ensure their academic success by knowing the benefits of setting goals, identifying available resources, understanding the writing process, and maintaining academic integrity. Advantages of setting goals Setting goals help to improve your motivation by creating a positive environment. They help you plan and gain control over your future; they also add challenge and give purpose to your life. Goals provide a sense of accomplishment for people. By setting goals you are more focused on the results that make you work smarter, not harder, they reduce stress and add meaning to your life (Milne,2001, Para.). Educational goals are imperative to have when thinking of going to school or even while you are still attending school. "By setting goals you create a game plan. Goals help you accomplish what is important to you. Goals force you to focus our efforts. Take your dreams, write them down and make them come true." (Milne, 2001, para.). When setting goals start with setting a long-term objective. Once you have your long-term goal, create short term goals to help accomplish our long term goal. I enjoy creating short-term goals because they help keep me motivated and looking forward. If I don't accomplish one, I have many others to fall back on to help me remain confident. My educational goal is to graduate with a bachelor's degree in human services with a concentration on family and children. Graduating the University of Phoenix is my long-term goal, which is crucial to me and great to have. However, if I want to be successful, I have to set short-term and mid-term goals. I try to set my short term goals weekly by finishing each week of my class without any missing or late assignments and participation points. By setting that short-term goal, I can concentrate on

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
