Hey! This is my second semester with dual enrollment, and if there's anything I've learned it's how completely important it is to keep to a solid routine. I took most of my classes online, partly because of how scheduling worked out and partly because of availability. I started out with four classes through my cc and then one at hs, but I had to drop one of them because I was inexperienced and took on too much of a load too early. This semester I'm taking four at cc and one through hs, and with what I learned last semester I'm much better prepared for what's to come.

Sticking to a routine is super important. My planner has become my best friend, and I use post-it notes to help keep track of everything I have to do and to make sure it all gets done. (I write class names on the post-its and then move them to one side or the other of my mirror depending on whether or not the classwork is completed for that week)

I use my planner to write down individual tasks, which are also organized into days. The amount of days for each class is determined the first week, it helps get a feel of how courseload will work out. (BMGT on Mondays, comms on Tuesdays, econ on Wednesdays and Thursdays, anthro on Fridays) I keep weekends for any catch-up work, but I only ever allow myself to do those classes on those days.

I know it sounds like a lot, but it's definitely worth it. I'm saving thousands of dollars and getting a headstart on my education. I would absolutely recommend anyone who can handle college-level classes to make that jump.
