Student Survival Guide

Being a college student is a challenge whether it is from a distance learning or face-to-face way. You, as a student, are completely on your own and have to make sure you complete your assignments. You have to be motivated and determined in order to succeed. As a student through distance learning, I’ve developed a student survival guide to serve as a resource throughout the program. My guide covers using Axia’s educational resources, upholding academic honesty, setting and achieving goals, managing time wisely, fostering reading comprehension and retention, and applying personality and learning styles by using Axia’s Educational Resources.

Being and becoming familiar with using Axia’s educational resources. One of Axia’s resources is the Center for Writing Excellence (CWE). I believe one of the most resourceful and important tools in CWE is the plagiarism checker. I can submit my papers before posting them and they are checked for plagiarism and grammar errors. I have learned that there are so many ways to actually commit plagiarism, knowing that, I use the plagiarism checker all the time to make sure I am aware of all the rules of plagiarism. I also use the grammar guide frequently. That’s one of my many faults in writing is having grammar errors and helps a lot when writing. The CWE also offers sample papers, essay development, and a thesis generator. Although I have yet to use the feature I plan to do so in the future for my classes. Another resource is the school online library. The library has three different databases you can use to search for items. They are EBSCOhost, Gale Power Search, and ProQuest. There I can find articles, journals, papers, etc. related to any search I may conduct. The possibilities are endless. It is crucial to learn how to navigate through this online library. If I ever feel lost, I can always ask the librarian for help.

Upholding Academic Honestly. I found it to be a very important part of you...
