Creating a Schedule

Let’s begin by creating a weekly personal academic schedule that will ultimately assist you in writing assignments.


A personal academic schedule outlines your fixed commitments and your flexible activities. You will customize it according to your lifestyle in order to help identify how much time you will have to prepare your assignments.

Begin now. Open and print the Personal Academic Schedule Template located in Resources.

1.  Block off your scheduled class times for the week.


2.  Fill in any other pre-set commitments (e.g., part-time job, yoga class,

     study group meeting, travel time to and from school).


3.  Identify any additional activities that you need in order to stay balanced and

     healthy (e.g., exercise, hobbies, relaxation). Estimate the number of hours

     per day/week each of these requires and add them into your schedule.
