In High School most teachers will assign you to turn in your homework late if you give them an excuse such as "I forgot it at home" or "It is in my locker". In contrast, in College if you give your professor one of these excuses, they will say "Too bad" and you do not have another opportunity. In high school, the time of your classes are picked out for you, one class is right after the other. In college, you can pick the days and the times you want to take each class, this way it’s easier for you to establish a work schedule that won’t interfere with school. If you would rather work in the morning and take classes in the evening, it is possible.
Should you need any help or just have a question, it’s difficult to get any personalized help from either the teacher or any student in your class. Any and all assignments that are due for your classes are turned in online, and you only have access to your school books through the computer. Because the classes are online, there are only dates and times that your assignments have to be turned in by (i.e. end of the week, Saturday by 11:59PM), which makes it easier for the student to procrastinate on their work. On-campus classes make it easier to communicate one-on-one with your teacher.

Crawford Kilian writes in her article “Plagiarism for beginners” about this attitude of students: You are in school only to get a non academic job. For you, university is a waiting room where you’re trapped for years. You just want to get through the wait with as little effort as possible until you collect your degree (par. 11). Pressure may also come from professors.

Introductory Research Paper into Academic Procrastination “Why do today when you can put off till tomorrow” is a phrase used when talking about procrastination. In my case the phrase is must used when dealing with my school work, studying for quizzes, exams or writing papers. Specifically Academic Procrastination or “Student Syndrome” is described as the phenomenon where a student will only begin to fully apply themselves to a task immediately before a deadline. As it’s described I leave studying or working on papers to the last minute. The studying or paper writing is still completed by the deadline but I start the task as late as possible but just soon enough to meet the deadline.
