It sometimes depends on what classes and teachers you sign yourself for. Most teachers will not give you busy work almost every assignment will count to your grade. But if you have a problem with assignments teachers do not mind explaining it further.

The academics are challenging but as long as you remain focused, you can get through it! College is not supposed to be easy.
Keisha from New Bloomfield, PA
Penn State Harrisburg has fabulous academic programs. I found my courses to be challenging, but not impossible. The Honors Program has a good reputation, and strives to increase the intellectual capabilities of students.

Courses can be tough, and the work load can be extremely difficult. Allow yourself plenty of time to complete the assignments.

The professor really care about the student passing. They will spend time with the students to help them.
