How financial aid can be lost if their grades slip. Work with an advisor to make sure all necessary subjects are taken so that receiving a degree in your major won't take more than 4 yrs. You need to be familiar with exactly who's teaching what & when, if you want to study under a particular professor. Advance planning is of the utmost importance so choosing class schedules can be a breeze. It all goes back to one of my favorite adages: Plan your work, work your plan. Nobody plans to fail, but too many fail to plan!
