Weekly Time Management

Try out a weekly schedule and/or a weekly to-do list to plan your time. You can download these tools as a PDF here or as a Microsoft Word Document here

  • Weekly Schedule: Use this hourly template to create a weekly routine for yourself, or plan out individual busy weeks. Block out your classes, when you plan to study and do your homework, when you plan to attend your professors' office hours, when you have work, and when you have extra-curricular responsibilities. Be sure you also block out time to rest and relax! You can block out time for meals, for exercise, for spending time doing something that makes you happy, etc.  
  • Weekly To-Do List: Break down your responsibilities into categories to help you prioritize your work. You can break up assignments over multiple days so that your work is balanced across the week, or you can work more on certain days to give yourself more free time on others. It is up to you! 
Time Assessment

If you are trying to get organized and don't know where to begin, or if you feel like you don't have enough time, try our Time Assessment Worksheet. It will help you learn how you are currently spending your time, on a daily and weekly basis. Once you are aware of how you are using your time, you can identify what you want to change. You can download the worksheet as a PDF here or as a Microsoft Word Document here. 

Semester Planning Guide

Our Semester Planning Guide is great for planning out larger assignments throughout the semester. It breaks the semester up by weeks so you can break your assignments up into manageable parts to complete one at a time. It helps you start larger assignments earlier to avoid stress later in the semester. You can download the worksheet here as a Microsoft Word Document.
