The Sims 4: How to do Homework

Homework in The Sims 4 is a necessary evil and a part of everyday life for most people IRL so it makes sense that it would be inside a life simulation game. From the time your sims turn into children until they’ve graduated University they are going to be doing homework and it will take up a significant part of their lives.

There are actually a few hacks you should know to get your sims to have more fun when doing homework, get it done quicker, and just generally finish it in a timely fashion that will make you a better sims player.

How to Do Homework for Children

When a sim’s kid returns from their long day at school they are going to have a little orange book inside of their inventory which is their homework. This should be completed before they attend school again which is usually the next day unless it’s the weekend.

You can get your sims to start doing their homework by clicking on the homework book in their inventory and choosing do homework . Your sims will find the nearest place to sit (even on the ground) to start working on their homework and will work until they are finished unless they are interrupted by low needs or an event trigger like a fire.

Any adult can come over to this sim while they are doing their homework and you can choose help with homework which will get the adult involved and sitting with the child and they will get their homework done much quicker.

There is even a system for sims kids (not teens) where if your kid gets all of the four children skills to level 3 they’ll have the option to breeze through homework instead of do homework and this will get the job done quicker.

Getting these skills all to level 7 will give them the option to dominate homework which will get it done even more quickly. This is a nice hack to really finish it without it being a huge part of their day.

Once a child has finished their homework, if they have a B or higher in school, they actually have the option to do extra credit after they’ve finished their regular homework. This is good for you if you want to get your sims to increase their school performance.

If you ever find your sims without a homework book in their inventory and you have no idea where it could be you can actually purchase these for one simoleon on any book case!

How to Do Homework for Teens

Homework works pretty much the same way for teens except their homework book is a nice blue colour instead of the orange that kids get. To get them to work on their homework you’ll get them to go into their inventory and click on it and choose do homework and they will start working on it.

They too have the option to have an adult sim to help with homework by getting that sim to click on them when they’ve started their homework and getting them to assist to make it go more quickly.

Once a teenager has a B in school they have the option to do extra credit after they’ve finished their regular homework. This will help them increase their school performance and get to an A as soon as possible.

Bonus Tip: Use the earbuds from The Sims 4: Fitness Stuff Pack when doing homework to keep your sims fun need up so they aren’t feeling tense when they’re done working on it.

School Projects

With The Sims 4: Parenthood there’s a pretty decent chance each week that your sims kids will come home with a school project that they can decide to complete for a boost to their grades. If they don’t complete it within a few days they may get a small decrease to their school grades but it’s not substantial.

These projects come home with your sims in their inventory and are rather easy to complete. They have the option to work on it either carefully or sloppily. Choosing sloppily will get the job done quicker, however, you won’t see a huge increase to their grades but you also won’t see a decrease.

The better option is to work carefully so your sims can improve their school grades. While they are working on these projects they’ll actually gain a skill depending on the type of homework they are working on. For sims kids they’ll be skills like mental, creativity, etc. but for teenagers it’ll be more specific like rocket science or painting .

One awesome thing is that you can get other sims to assist in the project up to 3 sims so you can get these projects done extremely quickly and if an adult sim who has a high skill in the project type assists it’ll go so quickly.

Working on these will also increase your sim’s kids’ responsibility character value which is awesome but failing to complete it will negativity impact this.

How to Do Homework in University

With the 2019 addition of The Sims 4: Discover University we have a whole new type of homework for your sims to have to work on. These homework books are going to be a black and white composite notebook that will appear in your sims inventory when they enroll in their first semester of university.

Each time your sim goes to a class they are going to need to do their homework before they attend that class if they want to get a good grade, meaning that if you’re taking multiple classes your sim will be needing to do homework multiple times per week.

To get this University homework done you’ll want to click on the homework book and choose which class’ homework you actually want to work on and get started. You don’t have to do it all in one sitting so you can start and stop as many times as you want.

An awesome detail about University homework is that if your sims have a high level of the research and debate skill they’ll actually breeze through their homework much more quickly. You can also add the study spot lot trait to your sim’s lot to make it easier.

Final Thoughts

Homework is something you can’t avoid if you want your sims to do well in school when they’re young, but there’s no need to stress about it. Sims grades won’t affect their later days work performance or the overall success in their life, so no worries if you don’t get it done. Happy Playing!

I've been playing the Sims since the first game was released when I was only 5 years old. It's been a huge passion of mine for two decades and I've loved every single minute of it. I also love dogs. And grilled cheese sandwiches. And I think me and Bob Pancakes could be friends.

It do work!

Doing a 4 course in sims 4 is a real tedious chore. It will consume all your sims time and you won’t have time to do anything else. They did this way worse than sims 3 university.

There are a few tricks mind you! First of all you can be at home instead, makes it all much easier and you can(like mentioned above) add the “study spot” trait to your home.

The next trick is using the club! Make sure, if you go to the university, add everyone you see to your club. Focus on getting “Rally the Troops” perk. That will allow you to get back all your energy and other needs quickly whenever you want. There is no cooldown on this. It requires 500 points so it’s not bad at all. Just make sure the gathering is on at all times(which it should be since you most likely won’t be leaving the lot). The homework perk does not work for university.

EA could easily have fixed this by reducing the homework time from 2 hours to 1 hours imo. They made it too much of a chore. It’s a GAME after all.

But that’s the whole challenge bruh

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

11 13 19 4 26 20 AM

Presented by EA Game Changers

Getting into university is one thing; excelling in university is quite another. For most people, the joys of university lie in balancing work with pleasure. A little studying here, a little partying there, leading to an overall well-rounded university experience.

This guide is not for the casual university student. This guide will walk you through how to throw yourself completely into your education in order to achieve the best grades (and the best future) possible. Throw away your juice kegs and break out those textbooks because school is all you’re going to know for the next three terms.

For a breakdown on scholarships and applying to university, see our guide, Discover University: Applying to University !

Class Selections

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

Of course, it all starts with enrolling and selecting your degree and classes. No matter which degree you pursue, you’ll have to select up to 4 classes per term. Classes change every term so you’ll see new ones available every time you select your classes at the start of term. You can’t change which classes you’ll be taking for your degree; you can only choose the number of classes.

However, Sims have the option of enrolling in 1 elective each term. Electives are fun classes that focus on skills outside of your degree and you will be able to select which elective your Sim will take that term. There are all kinds of electives that span a wide variety of skills. Electives are fully integrated across all packs, so depending on which add-on content you have installed, you may see different electives for skills from different packs.

Electives are optional; your Sim doesn’t need to take any electives at all, but if they do choose to take an elective, they can only take up to 3 other classes. Sims are limited to 4 classes per term in total, so either 4 classes, or 3 classes and 1 elective.

Our recommendation? Take 3 classes and 1 elective every term for maximum academic success. Electives still count as credits towards your degree so taking an elective doesn’t hurt your progress at all, plus your Sim will graduate with a few extra skills thanks to the electives they took.

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

One term last 5 working days. There is no way to shorten or lengthen a term. They are fixed periods. Sims can begin a new term anytime during the week, but weekends don’t count as term days. If your Sim starts a new term on a Friday, the term won’t end until Thursday the following week. Starting a new term in the middle of the week can be a good academic strategy for dedicated students because it will give them the weekend to catch up on homework and final assignments.

How many terms your Sim needs to complete in order to graduate is entirely dependent on how many classes they decide to take per term. A Sim needs to earn 12 credits in order to graduate.

Here is the breakdown of how many terms your Sim will need to complete based upon their classes:

  • 4 classes per term = 3 terms (15 working days)
  • 3 classes per term = 4 terms (20 working days)
  • 2 classes per term = 6 terms (30 working days)
  • 1 class per term = 12 terms (60 working days)

These calculations are based on the assumption that your Sim completes the same number of classes every term. It is possible to take a different number of classes each term (4 classes one term, 2 the next term, for example), in which case the number of terms needed to graduate will vary.

Even if a Sim only takes 3 terms to graduate, they will still spend the majority of their young adult life in university; however, unlike past Sims games, your Sims are not trapped on campus with no way to work or live a life outside of university. Sims can live wherever they want, have a job, and raise a family while going to school, so this balances things out. If the length of university is not ideal for your play style, we recommend turning aging off in the game options while your Sim is in university. That way, they don’t lose any time to climb a career ladder or pursue other life goals.

Of course, you will want to be taking 4 classes every term for maximum efficiency. Sims who don’t mind sacrificing their social life and plan to devote all their time to their studies should take a full course load every term.

Attending Classes

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

It’s important to actually attend class in order to get the most out of your university education. Missing class will hurt your grades. Sims in the area will autonomously try to get to class a little early. Sims who’ve arrived to class early will wait outside the building with the other early bird students. This can be a good time to get some last minute homework finished or to quickly finish the rest of that coffee and snack you purchased to-go at the cafe vendor.

While your Sim is inside the classroom rabbithole, they will have various options available to them by clicking on their portrait, much like the different work options for inactive careers. Click the class icon on the Sim’s portrait to see the various actions they can take in class. Sims can Actively Listen, Take Notes, Sleep in Class, or Chat with Friends. To get the most out of every class, make sure your Sim is taking notes or actively listening. I’m sure we don’t need to tell you that sleeping in class and chatting with friends are not good ways to improve your grades.

If you’re taking a full course load, it’s likely that your Sim will have more than one class in a day, or even back to back classes. Make sure to check the career panel often to keep track of your class schedule so you can budget your time for homework, finals, and self-care effectively.

Ideally, you will want your Sim to attend every single class with all of their homework completed and taking an active role in the class while they are there. This will ensure your Sim gets the most out of their classes and, in turn, gets the best grades at the end of term.

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

Every course your Sim takes has homework due before every class. When your Sim enrolls in university, they are automatically given a homework notebook in their personal inventory. Sims can complete homework for all their classes using this notebook. Homework takes some time to complete, but Sims with high enough Research & Debate skill complete homework faster.

Sims who stay on top of their homework and pay attention in class will get more out of attending classes and it will have a positive impact on their final grade. Always complete homework before every class and actively pay attention in class for maximum academic success.

In addition to homework that must be completed on a regular basis throughout the term, each class also has a final. Finals are very important and worth a large chunk of your grade. Skipping out on your finals will have a big negative impact on your final grade, so make sure you complete all of them.

Each class will have different requirements for its final. Some classes will require your Sim to write a term paper. Others have final exams and presentations. Look at your class schedule in the career panel to see what’s required of each class.

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

Exams take place during the last class of the term. If your Sim has done all their homework and attended all their classes, they’re likely to do well on their exam, but Sims can also study for a class using a course book purchased from the university kiosk, a computer, or research station to boost their chances of doing well on their exam.

Don’t miss your final exam! Failing to write the exam results in a big fat zero and will seriously hurt your final grade!

PSST! You can also cheat on your exam by selecting the option on your Sim’s portrait while they’re in the exam… but you would never do that… would you? Getting caught has serious consequences.

Term Papers

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

Term papers can be written on the computer under the University menu option. A Sim can write and submit a term paper for a class at any point during the term, so dedicated Sims might want to get these out of the way early.

Term papers take a long time to complete, but Sims with high enough Research & Debate skill complete term papers faster. The first draft of a term paper is usually poor quality. Your Sim can submit poor quality term papers, but f they want the best grade, they should spend some time editing their paper before they submit it.

Term papers can be edited until they are outstanding quality. You’ll receive a notification telling you that your term paper won’t benefit from any further editing once your Sim has increased its quality to outstanding. Scrolling over the term paper option in the computer’s menu will tell you the quality of the term paper.

When your Sim is satisfied with the quality of their paper, they can submit it using the computer.

PSST! You can also plagiarize your term papers by selecting the plagiarize option on the computer… but you would never do that… would you? Getting caught has serious consequences.


The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

Your Sim will receive a presentation board in their personal inventory at the start of term for any classes that have a presentation requirement as their final. Presentations function similar to term papers; your Sim will need to compile all of their material on the board, then refine the presentation board until it’s suitable to present in class.

To start, drag the presentation board out of your Sim’s inventory and into the world somewhere, then choose the Capture Information option on the board. Your Sim will spend some time compiling all their material for their presentation onto the board. When they’ve finished, they will have a poor quality presentation board. You can see the board’s quality by hovering over it.

Sims can improve the quality of their presentation by refining and organizing it, and asking other Sims for feedback on their presentation. They can also practice their presentation. Practicing presentations builds the Charisma skill. Once the board cannot be improved any further, you will receive a notification informing you that your Sim’s presentation board looks great and that continuing to fiddle with it won’t improve it any more.

When your Sim is satisfied with the quality of their presentation, they can go to class with the presentation board in their inventory and present it. Presentations do not take place during regular classes; your Sim must click on the class rabbithole and select the presentation option. Presentations can only be given during the day. Your Sim won’t be able to present in the middle of the night.

Final Grades & Starting a New Term

The Sims 4 Discover University: Guide to Academic Success

If your Sim has done all their homework, attended every class as an active participant, and completed all their finals with outstanding quality, they should have no trouble getting an A+ grade in every class. However, perfect grades don’t come easy. You’ll find that your Sim has little to no time for extracurricular activities, organizations, or socialising when they are taking 4 classes and trying to achieve an A+ grade in every single one of them. University is definitely a rewarding challenge in The Sims 4 , just like in the real world.

Since grades aren’t given out until the end of term, it’s up to your Sim to take a proactive approach to finding out how they’re doing in their classes. They can visit their professors during their office hours or email them on the computer to get an idea of how they’re performing in their classes and how they can improve.

Once all coursework has been submitted, your Sim will be free to enjoy themselves (for once) while their final grades are being processed. Once the final grades are in, you’ll receive a popup with all your final grades for each class, as well as your overall GPA.

From there, you can choose to enroll in another term right away, or take some time off before starting a new term. If your Sim has any scholarships, they must enroll in a new term immediately or they will lose their scholarships. Tuition costs for the new term will be handled at this point as well. Sims can pay with household funds or take out a loan to pay any tuition costs for the new term that scholarships don’t cover.

Your Sim will also be given the opportunity to make different housing arrangements at the start of each new term. They can choose to stay wherever they are currently living, or move somewhere else. This change does not happen right away. Your Sim will have about a day left in their old residence, which gives them an opportunity to pack up any personal items they may have purchased for their living space. A small “Packing Up” event will occur a couple hours before the move to remind your Sim to gather up their things, too.

As long as your Sim continues on the path to success they started in their first term, all their future terms are bound to result in perfect A+ grades across the board. Keep doing that homework, working on those finals, and paying attention in class!

When you think of gaming, homework probably is the furthest thing from your mind– but in the Sims 4, knowing how to do homework is the key to becoming a successful student, integral with the parenting skill, and impacts your Sims’ life in a few ways.

One thing’s for certain: whether you’re trying to raise a family, or cramming study sessions in between dorm parties, knowing how to do homework is a must in the Sims 4– and there’s more to it than you might think. Consider this your guide to homework, and all things related, in the Sims 4.

Homework in Sims: A Brief History

Homework has been signature gameplay in the Sims franchise. As a life simulator, it only makes sense that, just like players have to contend with paying bills, cleaning dirty dishes, and juggling careers with relationships, parenting, and everyday life. And it’s actually rather interesting to see how doing homework in the Sims has been important from generation to generation, but also evolved.

Here’s a Sparknotes version of the history of homework in the Sims franchise.

how to do homework sims 4 university

Homework was not a mainstay of the original Sims game, but it was in the Sims 2. In the Sims 2, homework was important for teens, kids, and the then-new young adult life stage.

Children and Teens

A child and teen in the Sims 2 were required to go to school (with options for both public and private). Homework was generated daily. After the bus brought the kid home, that child Sim would have a physical copy of homework in their hand. Normally, homework would be set on a desk or nearby surface, though I remember many times it would just as often be placed on the ground. Completing homework had a direct effect on the Sims’ grades. Every day without incomplete homework resulted in a deduction.

A teen’s homework was a duller color, compared with the bright hues of a kid’s homework. If a Sims’ needs were not met, then they would likely not finish homework. When a Sim aged up, their homework automatically disappeared.

There were a few basic interactions for children and teens with homework in the Sims 2.

  • Work on Homework
  • Complete Homework
  • Ask for Homework Help — this could be asked of any older Sim, and not only helped Sims complete homework more quickly, but also allowed them to complete homework more efficiently in the future.

Young Adults

Young adults were introduced in the Sims 2 University expansion pack, and have since become perhaps the most popular life stage in the Sims franchise. In the Sims 2, this life stage was limited to the University expansion. These young adults worked on assignments in order to influence their grades. It worked in a similar way as with kids and teens, though in addition to homework, they also had exams to deal with.

Sims 3 continued the homework system from Sims 2, making it clear that doing homework would become an expected gameplay feature in the Sims franchise. In many ways, Sims 3 kept the same basic systems for homework intact but enhanced it through new traits, packs, and an updated interface.

School, again, was mandatory for children in the Sims 3 , with a new boarding school option for no private school. If a Sim was sent to boarding school, there was nothing that you needed to worry about in terms of completing homework. Otherwise, it worked more or less the same way: new homework was generated and had to be completed for every school day.

New features included:

  • The ability to do homework with a Sim of the same age
  • The ability to copy homework (which could send them to detention)
  • Ability to work on past due homework
  • Enhanced homework completion with the workaholic and bookworm traits or if your Sim was a vampire (Sims 3: Supernatural expansion)
  • Homework became a hidden skill
  • Sims with an A average could select their new trait when they became a teen or young adult
  • Grades listed in the new Simology panel

Young Adults (and Adults)

Sims who opted to attend college (via the Sims 3: University Life expansion pack), of course, had homework of their own. Homework, or assignments, were fairly similar to Sims 2, and, like Sims 2, the grades were determined by other factors like exams, but also somewhat how they behaved in their seminars, as well as outside projects.

Homework in the Sims 4- Your Guide

how to do homework sims 4 university

If you’ve played previous Sims games, the good news is that homework in the Sims 4 isn’t too different from previous Sims games. But like each generation, there are different tricks and tips you need to keep in mind to be successful, whether you are just looking to complete homework to help teens pass high school, or your Sims are tackling on a degree at the University of Britechester or Foxbury Institute of Technology.

Here’s what I think you need to know.

Children are required to go to school, and Sims 4 does arguably take a step back in that public school is the only option for children and teens.

Getting to School

In a curious move, Sims 4 does not have any transportation that picks Sims up. In fact, the lack of even cars in the game has been a source of contention. In any case, a school bus won’t pick up children or teens, nor can you watch them make their way to school, as you could in the Sims 3. Instead, children and teens will either automatically transport themselves to school, or you can prompt them.

Decisions During School

Especially if you have Sims 4 Parenthood game pack, you can influence teen and child Sims’ days at school, at least a little. Pop-ups may occasionally come up where you are given a scenario, just as another kid caught cheating, or your Sim being teased. Some of these will impact your Sim’s mood and social life. Sometimes, a child or teen will also ask for advice, which is tied to Sims 4 Parenthood parenting skills.

Locating Homework

As was the case with Sims 2, there is a small distinction in the appearance of children and teens’ homework. Children Sim will have a yellow Grade School Handbook, which, when not being worked on, is typically in their inventory. Teen homework is a blue notebook.

If you’re like me, though, sometimes homework gets lost in the house. If that happens you can actually purchase homework from a bookcase for a single simoleon. And unlike in the Sims 2, homework isn’t assigned to one Sim in particular, meaning a kid can complete their homework even if it wasn’t their original copy.

How to Do/ Complete Homework

To work on homework, simply drag it out of your Sims’ inventory and click on it for the “Do Homework” option. You can have your Sim to do homework all at once, or pick it back up after taking care of their needs. Remember, your teen or child Sim will be assigned homework every school day, with no new homework on weekends.

Homework and Grade Performance

Knowing how to do homework in Sims 4 is helpful for grade performance, but it also isn’t the only factor. In fact, by building skills, working on projects, and even keeping your Sims in a good mood, you can remain a fairly good student even when you skip homework from time to time.

Sims that are at a B or A average also will have access to the “Do Extra Credit” option. This pops up after they complete their homework for the day and you select their homework a second time (homework doesn’t disappear after being completed like previous Sims games). Extra credit is a chance to boost your Sims’ grades even more.

School Projects

School Projects are a unique feature exclusive to the Sims 4: Parenthood game pack. Available to teens and children, Sims can both work on their own projects and assist others. Working on a project builds all child skills at once.

Unlike homework, there is no official deadline for school projects so there aren’t penalties for however long it takes. Once a project is completed, the student can start on a new one. Adults can help both teens and kids; kids can be helped by teens/.

You’ll be able to select from one of seven projects, all available for purchase on build mode. The completed project will be rated as excellent, good, or poor. Siblings may get upset with one another if their project is destroyed by a brother or sister.

How to Do Homework Faster

I admit; sometimes I get impatient with doing homework in Sims 4, especially if I have other plans for the family. The good news is that, if you work on your Sims’ skills, you can speed up the process for children.

You’ll need to work equally on the four major skills for Sim Children: creativity; mental; motor; social; and mental. Level 3 of all of these allows you to “Breeze through Homework” while level 7 allows them to “Dominate Homework”.

For teens, your only real option is installing a mod (which I will discuss later).

University Students

how to do homework sims 4 university

Young adult and adult Sims can attend one of two campuses if you have the The Sims 4: Discovery University expansion pack installed. Homework, as you might imagine, is part of the equation–but the homework system looks different for adult and young adult Sims than it does for younger Sims, which impacts how you should do homework.

Getting Accepted

I won’t go into a full guide to the Discover University pack, but, in a nutshell, you Sim will have to first apply using a computer. Based upon their previous grades, skill set, and some other factors, they will either be offered or denied admission to the program of their choice at the University of Britechester of Foxbury Institute of Technology.

There is also the opportunity to gain scholarships and take out loans to finance their education. In my experience, most get accepted to school but may be limited to pursuing an honorary degree. Humanities-based degrees at Britechester, like English Literature, are honorary, while if you want a science or technology degree with distinction your Sim should attend the more modern Foxbury.

Homework Load at University

Homework is a part of the university experience in Sims 4, and doing it will help your Sims’ performance. Homework appears in their inventory (as a black and white book) and is meant to be completed before every class. You can also purchase homework from a bookshelf or the college’s kiosk (found out on the quad).

Classes are usually in the form of seminars and do not last all day, but your Sim, depending on your enrollment decisions, will likely have at least two classes per day, meaning you’ll have to juggle multiple assignments.

Other Types of Homework

In addition to doing daily homework, Sims need to attend class regularly. You’ll also be working towards end of the semester exams, final projects, and term papers, depending on the class. Doing homework daily is helpful in keeping their grade average high, and putting a little less pressure on a term paper. It is possible to flunk out of college, so doing homework on a regular basis and attending classes is a must.

How to Make Homework Easier

Knowing how to do homework doesn’t cut it, though. Between classes, roommates, parties, extracurriculars, and just taking care of basic needs, if you’re like me, you’ll want to tip things in your Sims’ favor a little. Here are some tips

  • Work on skills related to their major, or current classes
  • Keep your Sim in a good mood by keeping needs in check
  • Decorate your space with objects that exude a “Focused” mood (you can see this if you hover over objects in buy mode)
  • Lock your dorm room to other Sims when studying
  • Work on the Research and Debate skills
  • Study in the library or another place if your roommate is partying
  • Live off-campus and apply the “Study Spot” lot traits

Using Mods for Better Homework

If you know how to do homework in the Sims 4 but want it to run more smoothly, another option is to download a mod. I always caution that mods are at your own risk, and they can break, so make sure you check to see that the mod has been updated and that you’re downloading from a secure site.

Better Autonomous Homework by LittleMsSam

This mod fixes what many saw as a deficit in the Sims 4 homework system, by making sure that child Sims will do their homework without your prompting. Now and Sim with an A, B, or C average won’t require you to direct them to do their homework, at least initially.

There are optional add ons, too, such as careers affecting the speed they complete their homework; automatic transfer of homework to inventories when not in use; and a mod for NPCs. Read/ Download Here .

Faster Homework (University Edition) by Scarlet’s Mods

As the name suggests, this mod allows your Sims studying at college to do homework faster. While homework normally takes 150 Sim minutes to complete, this mod allows them to complete it in 10, 25 or 50 minutes. It’s truly a huge time saver. Read/ Download Her e.

Subject Homework by ScarletQueenKat

Subject Homework adds a little nuance and potential storytelling element for how to do homework for teens and kids in the Sims 4, all the while improving skills. Children will now be able to practice vocabulary (improves motor skill); review social studies (increases social skill) and do math problems (improves mental skill).

Teens can now solve algebra problems (increases logic skill); write a fitness article (raises fitness skill); practice creative writing (increases writing skill); and study music theory (improve the guitar skill).

Question: Where is homework located in The Sims 4?

Answer: You can find homework in your Sims’ inventory. Sometimes. Sims will work on it and place it elsewhere. If you lose homework, it can be purchased from a bookshelf for one simoleon, or at a University kiosk for college students.

Question: Can you grade homework in Sims 4?

If you have Sims 4 Discover University installed, you get an opportunity to grade homework if your Sim is in the Education Career. To grade homework, you need to navigate to the Education Career menu. From there, you can access student homework.

Final Thoughts

Knowing how to do homework in the Sims 4 can make your playing experience a lot easier. With the help of skills, and maybe some mods, homework will take up less of your gameplay time, while your Sims still stay top students–if they, and you, so choose.

This post was last updated on May 1, 2024

If you’re wondering how to do homework, Sims 4 is way easier and more fun than real life! One of the unique aspects of Sims 4 is how it mimics real-world experiences, including raising Sim children and boosting your Sim’s school performance. Understanding how to help with homework is challenging, especially with the complex updates since previous Sims games.

At That VideoGame Blog, we provide tips, tricks, and cheat codes for all the hottest games so you’ll never get stuck. For example, you can learn about the must-have traits for Sims 4 to better define how your Sims act.

Below, we discuss everything you need to know about homework in the Sims 4 universe!

What You Need To Know About Homework in the Sims Universe

Homework is nothing new to the Sims franchise. The game capitalizes on real-world chores, like doing the dishes, parenting children, paying bills, going to work, and juggling each life stage. The homework system evolved throughout Sims 2 and 3 to reach the level it’s at now, which we discuss in more detail below.

Kids Must Go to School

The game requires all child Sims to attend school. In previous games, you could choose the type of grade school your children and teens attended, though now public school is your only option. Fortunately, you can influence their mood and social life during the school day by helping them make decisions about social dilemmas.

For example, you might receive a notification about another child Sim cheating on a test or bullying the younger Sims. Parenting your Sim through these scenarios directly impacts their personality.

Adults Can Choose To Attend University

Young adult Sims can choose to further their education by attending a university. You can pick between two schools with the Discover University Expansion pack. Before attending, your Sims must apply, as real university students would.

The two university options, the University of Britechester or the Foxbury Institute of Technology, will analyze your Sim’s skills and grades before offering an acceptance or denial letter. You can also apply for scholarships and loans to help finance your Sim’s education. Once they attend school, they can choose a different degree like literature, electronic arts, science, technology, etc.

Every adult Sim attending a university must complete homework, just like the child Sims do, though they usually spend less time each day in class. University students must balance term papers, daily homework, extra credit, and exams while attending classes. Helping your older Sim stay on track with their university homework prevents them from failing the semester.

You Don’t Need to Worry About School Transportation

You’ll notice that Sims 4 doesn’t have a school bus or any other transportation system to get your child or teen Sims to school. Luckily, you don’t need to worry about walking them or watching them arrive. In Sims 4, all students automatically teleport to the necessary classroom at the appropriate times.

Locating Homework Gets Complicated

Keeping track of all the homework in the Sims 4 universe isn’t easy. Each student’s age group receives different homework books, so it’s important to keep them organized. The following key outlines each Sim’s homework book color by age:

  • Children: Yellow Grade School Handbook and orange homework book
  • Teen’s homework: Blue homework book
  • Adults: Black and white book (found in the Sims inventory)

You can purchase books and copies if your Sim loses the original version. We also recommend getting a bookcase to organize all homework books in your house. Adult students can purchase books and homework from the University Kiosk.

How To Do Homework: Sims 4

Now that you understand how homework functions, let’s discuss how to help your Sims family dominate homework. School work is a necessary evil in the game because Sims’ grades suffer when they skip homework or turn in incomplete homework.

Completing Homework for Sims 4 Kids

When your child Sim comes home from school, they’ll bring an orange book in their backpack with all their homework. You must have them complete homework before the next school day. Follow these instructions:

  • Open the Sim’s inventory for your younger Sims.
  • Click “Do homework.”
  • Aid them with any needs as they work.
  • Send an adult Sim to help with the child’s homework.
  • Click “help with homework” from the adult Sim’s inventory.
  • Increase child “skills” levels to complete homework faster (like the research and debate skill).
  • Once finished, have the Sim complete extra credit to boost homework grades.

Note that whenever you leave a Sim to do homework, they will continue working until finished unless they need something. Keep an eye on event triggers and low needs to ensure that your Sim child or teen continues working hard.

Helping Sim Teens Dominate Homework

Teenaged Sims complete regular homework just like the younger Sims. Once they’re home from school, open up the inventory menu and select the option to work on class homework. You can make one of your other Sims offer homework help to complete the process more quickly by following the same instructions above.

If your teen Sim has a B in the class, they can choose to do extra credit as well to boost their grades. Helping your teen Sim get an A improves their odds of getting accepted into a university.

We also recommend getting earbuds from the Fitness Stuff Pack to let your teens listen to music while they do homework. Sometimes grueling school hours can decrease fun levels, but music helps keep energy high.

Completing School Projects

Aside from regular homework, sometimes your family members bring home school projects. In Sims 4: Parenthood, you’ll likely see a school project at least once weekly.

Unlike homework, projects are semi-optional. If your Sim completes the work, their grade goes up, but if they don’t finish it in a few days, their grade will only go down a small amount.

You can have your Sims complete projects just as they do homework. The new homework project appears in the inventory, where you can prompt your Sim to begin working on it. You have two options to choose from when they do homework for a school project:

  • Sloppy : Letting your Sim do homework sloppily completes the project faster, though it offers smaller grade increases.
  • Careful : When Sims work carefully on a project, they boost their grades more and gain certain skills, depending on the project type. Child Sims might gain creativity or building skills while teens can acquire more specific ones like painting or rocket science skills.

To make the homework project fly by, you can have up to three Sims work on it together, including adults. We recommend assigning an adult with more advanced skills to help move things along. Once completed, any child Sims will receive improved responsibility character value scores.

Completing Adult Sim University Work

If you sign up for the University Expansion, you have the fun opportunity of sending your adult Sims to college. University homework is more advanced since it requires your Sims to do homework for multiple classes at once. Rather than doing one homework assignment daily, each Sim might need to complete two or three to prepare for classes the next day.

When you’re ready to have your Sim do homework, click on the specific homework book for the class you want them to work on. Remember, university books are black and white. After selecting the appropriate class, your Sim can work on their homework for as long as you choose.

Adult Sims with strong research and debate skill levels enjoy rapid homework completion rates. We recommend helping your Sims improve their debate skills to finish homework quickly.

Tips for Finishing Homework Faster

Balancing homework with other life stresses is challenging in Sims 4. If you want to help your Sims finish their homework quickly and easily, use these tips:

  • Help your Sims increase their logic skill level.
  • Work on skills related to their major or classes.
  • Dedicate a space in the house for homework with calming decorations.
  • Keep your dorm room locked from others while your Sims study.
  • Increase your Sims’ research and debate skills.
  • Take your Sim to the library if their roommate throws a party.
  • Apply for Study Spot lot traits.
  • Boost child skill levels so they can finish homework quickly.
  • Consider downloading mods to help you fly through homework smoothly.

How do you take your final exam in The Sims 4?

If you have an adult sim taking university courses, you can have them take the final exam by attending the last day of class. It should be noted, however, that it appears a bug exists that prevents players from having their sim take the final exam. As of writing, no official source has confirmed nor denied this bug’s existence nor have they confirmed or denied that a patch fix has been implemented.

A teen Sim does homework on a plain desk

In The Sims 4 ’s new expansion, High School Years , your teen Sims can head out to school the same way some Sims head to work. You can go with them to control what they do throughout the school day, affecting their relationships and academic growth.

Notably, in the career tab for the teen Sim, you’ll see that they have a daily task to “do homework” after every school day (as you’d expect from school). Though homework for young Sims is not a new addition, it can be new for players who never had teenage Sims.

The homework your teen Sim has to do will be in their personal inventory , as a little blue book. You can select it and click “do homework” and your teen Sim will move to a nearby table to do it.

Based on our gameplay, not doing homework didn’t do anything too dramatic to the Sims’ school performances. As long as your teen Sim is attending class, they’ll progress in their career just fine. However, if you want them to improve their grades faster, they should actively be doing their homework.

The Sims 4 university: how to get degrees

Distinguished degrees and how to enroll explained

By going to university, your Sims can earn degrees that can propel your Sim into the career of their dreams. Better scores give you a better head start, so how do you achieve the top grades?

In this The Sims 4 Discover University guide, we will tell you how to enroll into university, where to get distinguished degrees , and everything you need to know about getting a degree . If you're looking to join the secret society, look at our  The Sims 4 secret society guide for details.

How to enrol into university in The Sims 4

Where to get distinguished degrees, how to get a degree in the sims 4 university, choosing whether to live on or off campus, managing your sim's course load, go to class and be an active participant, doing homework.

  • Presentations
  • Term papers
  • Final exams

Cover image for YouTube video

To apply for university, have your Sim use a computer and select "University", then click "Apply to Universities". Your Sim will then apply for a place at both University of Britechester and the Foxbury Institute.

Your Sim will get an acceptance letter after one or two in-game days. This letter will inform you of which course places your Sim can take up. Your application status can also be checked via the computer.

Once you've had confirmation of a university place, you can enrol in the university of your choice via the computer, mailbox, or your cell/mobile phone.

Since there are two universities, your Sim will want to go to the right university for their skills and aspirations. Distinguished degrees get you an even bigger boost to your Sim's career. The University of Britechester tends to offer distinguished degrees for arts and humanities subjects, while the Foxbury Institute offers distinguished degrees for the sciences.

To gain acceptance into distinguished degrees, your Sim will need to have high skills levels related to the distinguished degree course. For example, acceptance into the distinguished Art History degree at the University of Britechester is more likely if your Sim has higher charisma, painting, and writing skills.

Below are two tables that show what courses the universities offer, as well as the organisations that can be found within each one.

University of Britechester degrees and organisations

The Sims 4 university guide

By sending your Sim to university, you'll likely want them to achieve the highest grades and get a good degree. Degrees can help give your Sim a big boost in the career of their choice. The rest of this guide will be focused on what you need to do to get good grades.

This might seem like a rather arbitrary decision to make, but choosing whether or not to live with other Sims on campus or living on your Sim's own can make all the difference between graduating with distinction or flunking their class entirely.

Living on their own is a good option for your Sims. They won't be distracted by messy roommates, and will have access to everything at any time they want. There's also the fact that you won't need to waste time travelling to the University Commons to get food, and the fact you can designate your Sim's home with the Study Spot lot trait to help your Sims do better in class. It's not impossible for your Sims to ace their tests in shared accommodation, but it is significantly harder to juggle a social life and intense studying.

However, there are some advantages to living on campus. You can arrive to class early, ensuring that a late mark doesn't affect your grade. Living on campus is particularly useful if you're trying to get the Academic aspirations, as being on campus to attend guest lectures and using the research archive machine can help greatly.

A decent compromise might be to put your Sims into smaller residential units for the two universities: namely Maritime Manor for Foxbury Institute or Darkwing House for the University of Britechester. This option is sort of the best of both worlds. You'll have a computer and a kitchen on-site, as well as a reduced likelihood of sharing space with a messy Sim. But the main advantage is that you're still on campus, so you  should be able to attend class early.

As Jack Torrance in The Shining wrote repeatedly on his typewriter: all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Working your Sims too hard can burn them out, so you need to strike a good balance of courses and other activities.

For every semester, your Sim has the option to take a maximum of four classes. They can either take up to four core classes, or a mixture of up to three core classes and an elective. You can choose to take fewer classes in a semester, but your Sim will stay in university for a longer time before graduating.

If you want to strike a good balance between classes , I highly recommending sticking to two core classes and a single elective: a total of three classes per semester. However, this will take 20 in-game days, or four whole terms - your Sim's entire young adulthood period - to complete. You can graduate as an adult, or you can use the relevant  The Sims 4 cheats , or the Potion of Youth aspiration reward to slow down the ageing process until you graduate.

All these classes count towards your Sim's degree, but electives give your Sim a chance to learn a skill that's unrelated to the subject of their degree.

Put simply, your Sim must attend every single class to get straight A's. Your Sim must also be punctual, arriving on time for every class. One of the few advantages to living on campus is that Sims can get to class early. They'll stand outside the lecture rooms holding their notebooks and may even use that time to finish their homework.

The other thing that will affect your Sim's grades is their current mood. Try to ensure that they're not distracted, or even in a bad mood. If they need a quick boost to their emotions, have them pack snacks or grab a snack from the coffee cart between classes.

When in classes, your Sim has multiple options. I highly recommend that you should choose to either  actively listen or  take notes if you want a high grade. This does have the side effect of reducing your Sim's fun need at a faster rate than if you  attend class normally .

Your Sim does have other options such as sleeping in class, leaving early, or chatting with students , but this can hurt your Sim's grades.

After enrolling into university, your Sim will get a homework book that they'll stash in their inventory. This little book is a key item to getting high grades.

Your Sim will be set homework to be handed in to every class session your Sim attends. This includes homework set before the first classes of term, so your Sim will have homework from the moment you enrol.

Increasing your Sim's  Research and Debate skill helps them finish their homework quickly, so if you have a spare moment, try to spend some time increasing this skill. Learn more about them in our  The Sims 4 skills guide.

The Sims 4 university guide

Completing coursework

Throughout each term, your Sim will also need to complete coursework. These come in three varieties:

I cannot stress enough the value of getting your term papers and presentations done before each new term starts. By doing this, you'll have some free time to spend on boosting your Sim's fun meter, since actively listening or taking notes during lectures will reduce the fun meter harshly. Your Sim will also have more time to dedicate to extra studying through the computer.

After completing the last day of classes and finishing your assignments for each term, your Sim will be shown their final grade for that term after a few hours.

How to prepare presentations

When a term starts, you may find a presentation in your Sim's inventory. This is an empty green board that needs to be completed before submitting. To work on it, simply drag the item out of your Sim's inventory and place it on their lot.

The first step is to complete all the information on the board. Once this is done, you'll want to organise the board and refine the information to create a better quality presentation. If your Sim can call upon other Sims to get feedback, they can help refine it further.

After this is complete, make sure you practice your presentation at least once. You can practice it more times to increase your charisma skill, but it only needs to be done once to get the top grade.

Once you're satisfied that you've done all you can to make the presentation a great one, you'll need to present it. Your presentation can only take place between 8am and 4pm on weekdays . You must also present it before the final day of classes for that term. Click on the project, either where you placed it or in your inventory, and select "Give Presentation" to present it. It'll take two in-game hours to finish giving your presentation.

How to write term papers

All your Sim needs to write a term paper is a computer. Term papers can be written from the start of term.

To have your Sim write their paper, go to any computer and under the University tab, you'll find the Coursework section. Your Sim will then spend a few hours writing the paper, though it can be done in more than one sitting. Don't be tempted to submit a plagiarised term paper as you won't get the top grades for it. There is also a risk of getting caught and suspended for doing so.

Once your Sim has written the first draft of the paper, keep editing the term paper until you get a notification to say that you won't be able to make the paper any better. You could keep editing the paper to improve your knowledge, but this is a waste of valuable time.

You can then safely submit your paper. If you want to see how good it is while you work on it, hover your mouse over the submit button. You'll see a word that indicates the quality of the paper: poor, normal, or excellent. If it's excellent, submit that paper!

Much like homework, a high research and debate skill helps your Sim finish their term paper quickly. A good tip here is to plan ahead and have your Sims as teens work on the research and debate skill as they go through school. This  can be done cheaply in the home by practising debate in the mirror, which is good because you don’t have to buy an expensive and space consuming debating podium.

How to study for final exams

If your Sim's assignment for the term is to take the final exam, your Sim needs to study all term  if you want the top grades. You'll want to study at least twice in each class that has a final exam. There are a few ways to study for an exam:

  • The first is to use your computer. In the University section, select "University Coursework", then select "Study".
  • Your Sim can also study using the university's research machines in either the university library or in the commons. Select the "study for..." option.
  • Finally, your Sim can purchase textbooks from any bookcase or from the kiosks in the quad at the university. Each one costs §700.

When you have multiple final exams coming up, you may need to prioritise which modules you want your Sims to study for. They can email professors about their progress on each module, finding out which ones they're doing better or worse in. There’s no point doing this too early in a term, as the professors will say that it’s too early to tell.

How to do homework in The Sims 4

No matter if it’s real life or The Sims 4, going to school is never easy. The worst part is always the homework. After a young Sim returns home, they still need to sit down to complete homework assignments. Here is what you need to know to do homework in The Sims 4.

The basics of The Sims 4 homework

how to do homework sims 4 university

There are three types of basic homework. There’s grade school and high school homework, for child and teenager Sims, respectively. You can find the younger Sims’ homework inside their inventory. Make sure to do it before the end of each day and that they have a great mood before leaving the house so they can succeed in school. Each time they age up, new homework is added to their inventory to reflect it. You can sell unnecessary homework for $1. If young Sims do well throughout grade and high school, they can improve from a C student to a B student, eventually becoming a successful A+ student. A+ students will get higher-paying positions in their chosen careers that they start as young adults .

To improve your younger Sims’ school standing, the school will also sometimes give you school projects. You can also get these projects by purchasing them for $100 in buy mode. You can finish these projects by “working carefully” or “working sloppily.” The former gets you more points toward being an A+ student.

Moreover, the more skills your young Sims have, the quicker they can complete their homework. If you have all their skills up to level 3, they can choose to “breeze through homework.” If they have all their skills at level 7, they can choose to “dominate homework” to complete it even faster. Another way to help your young Sim do their homework faster is by having an adult Sim choose to “help with homework.” It increases their relationship bar while getting the schoolwork done faster.

Homework in The Sims 4: High School Days

For people who have The Sims 4: High School Days , homework isn’t all that different. However, you do have to worry about exams every Friday. When you have an upcoming test on your teen Sim’s schedule, you need to choose whether to cram for the test or not study at all. Instead of a homework book, this is just a prompt you can choose when clicking on your sim. If they get good exam scores, their standing grade (A, B, or C) will improve.

Homework in The Sims 4: University

how to do homework sims 4 university

If you want advanced homework, though, look no further than The Sims 4: University pack. When you have a student attending University in The Sims 4,   they have homework they continuously need to be working on while they attend school. Your Sim has to complete their homework before they attend a class again to get good grades. You can have them complete their homework faster if their home has a study spot trait, or if your Sim has the research and debate skill leveled up. You can level up your research and debate skill by using a mirror, using a podium, or using the Archive at the university, which is free to use.

Troubles with homework in The Sims 4

Some players have reported having issues sometimes misplacing their Sims’ homework. If you need to obtain a new homework workbook, you can do so by purchasing it from the bookshelf by clicking the “purchase books” tab.

You should also be sure to try to have your Sim do their homework when they arrive home from school. You can potentially have them do homework late at night or in the morning before school, but it’s a risk. They could end up going to school exhausted or with unfinished homework.

Sims 4 University Guide – Everything You Need To Know

Photo of author

The Sims 4: Discover University introduces to the players the University of Britechester and Foxbury Institute. So what will it be? The University of Britechester focuses more on creative arts and is older and richer with history. Foxbury Institute is newer and features classes to aid in careers such as becoming a scientist or an astronaut.

Which Is Better Foxbury or Britechester University?

If you prefer to tinker, do rocket science, or program then Foxbury is just the right fit for you, but if you like the flashing lights of acting, being a detective or perhaps being a social media influencer then maybe the University of Britechester is better. Foxbury is directly related to science-related careers usually, Britechester is more for creative work like writing, painting, or acting. You can take up to 4 classes or fewer with electives to learn separate skills to graduate.

Degrees in The Sims 4 are not too hard to earn given you are never tired, always full, and need no one, which can be achieved through the reward store. However, there is plenty to do at university while you’re there which can make it quite fun like creating a Servo or doing keg stands. It’s also important to keep the “Academic” aspiration in mind when applying. Let us do a deep dive into what all goes into first getting there and then achieving maximum success.

how to do homework sims 4 university

Applying For College

When you are applying for college it is always wise to take out your phone or get on your computer and E-mail that former guidance counselor about scholarships. Eventually, they will get back to you with the scholarships you will most likely achieve. This does not mean you can’t get more, but, ultimately you will have no problem with the scholarships they recommend. After you apply for scholarships through your computer or phone you will receive your response in just a couple of days.

After receiving your response from your scholarships, you can apply for college. This is where you decide what job you’re going to want to pursue after college. Getting your skills increased in the particular subject area of study you’ll be doing will help with being accepted, like writing to be a writer. After that, you choose your degree and apply.

✨ Learn the many ways of becoming famous in the Sims 4 in our guide. ✨

Distinguished Degrees vs. Regular Degrees

Both universities offer the same degrees, however, they specialize in different areas. This is where distinguished degrees come in. Foxbury may be a school specializing in science and technology and therefore having distinguished degrees in those subjects, but it will always offer regular degrees in creative arts and humanities. The same goes for the University of Britechester, so it’s important to pick the correct university when deciding on your career path as a distinguished degree will be better in the long run.

University Sims 4

Going to university from home is the cheapest option as you do not have to pay for housing and scholarships will eat up the cost of your classes. It is also the most efficient as your Sim will treat it as a job and go to it when it calls to them. Not only that but you’re familiar with your house and thus you know where everything is and you can customize it at any time you need.

UBrite Housing

Offers five different types of housing settings, one of which is free and that is your house of course and you just pay for the classes, the other four are paid for by term unless you decide to move off of campus and off your lot. They are:

  • At Home: Free – However many people live in your household
  • Off Campus: However much the cost of the house is you’re moving to + cost/term of classes
  • Darkwing Hall: $558/term – 4 bedrooms – No gender restrictions
  • Drake Hall: $326/term – 8 bedrooms – No gender restrictions
  • Wyvern Hall: $312/term – 8 bedrooms – No gender restrictions – Best of Friends Household

Foxbury Housing

  • At Home: Free – However many people are living in your household
  • Off Campus: Cost of home + cost/term of classes
  • Briny Tower: $95/term – 8 bedrooms – No gender restrictions
  • Maritime Manor – $585/term – 4 bedrooms – No gender restrictions
  • Tidal Tower – $293/term – 8 bedrooms – No gender restrictions

At-home or off-campus housing is certainly a good option as your Sim will treat university like a regular job and go to it when your classes call. You can customize your personal home when you feel the need to but you cannot customize the dorms when you move into on-campus housing. On-campus housing has the benefit of meeting new people and being closer to organizations and classes and just general immersion in the entire idea. Ultimately, it is entirely up to you with what you would like to do when the time comes to go to university and get a degree.

Getting Good Grades

If you take four classes, you will have a presentation, term paper, or likely both that can be pulled out of your inventory or completed on the computer. Your presentation can be completed by pulling it out of your inventory and placing it into the world. This will usually give it a starting condition of “poor” but then it’s time to refine and organize it until its condition is excellent. After that, you can give the presentation at any point between 8 A.M. – 4:30 P.M. by the end of the term.

Your term paper is written on a computer which can be found at the Ubrite Commons or Foxbury Commons or if you have one yourself. After you finish the paper you can go back and edit it to make it in much better condition before submitting it.

It’s important to also complete homework, which is stored in your inventory and looks like a composition notebook. Sims have a tendency to just put it down anywhere they like. You can buy additional homework notebooks from stands/kiosks around campus for one simoleon if you need to, I suggest buying three or four.

Studying is an important aspect of classes as well, using an Electromagnetic Research Archive Machine, or just a computer if you like. To get a good idea of how you’re doing, you can “E-mail Professors About Progress”. Then you will know exactly what to study for.

After School Activities

There are many after-school activities from which you can partake and even earn money. You can join an E-sports team or an outdoor sports team. To make some money on the side, you can tutor students for a few hours and earn 100 simoleons. Attending guest lectures is also an option and a goal for the “Academic” aspiration. Guest lectures can be found in buildings around the center statues of each university, but they provide no benefit to you.

Depending on the university you go to, you have a few different organizations you can choose from which are separate from clubs. If you join the University of Britechester, you can decide between

The Debate Guild

Ubrite spirit corps.

  • Art Society

If you go with Foxbury Institute then you can choose between:

Bot Savants

Foxbury spirit squad, the brainiacs, organizations.

Organizations can be joined while in university, at a kiosk by checking for organization events, separate from a club you may be in until the end of your time in university. They are like a job in that you have to do certain tasks at your leisure and you will eventually get promoted. There is no penalty for failing to do a task by the next time you are needed to go to a meeting. If you cannot go to a meeting then do not fret, your progress and organization rank carries over into your next term. You can go through the organization as fast or slow as you like, it is entirely flexible.

The University of Britechester offers a variety of creative arts and humanities organizations that you can join based on your skill or what you are studying that would be beneficial to you. It’s important to note that to maintain a good grade, you have to strike a balance between class and time spent with the club. You can take to the stage and furiously debate ideas with The Debate Guild which would be especially helpful if you have a degree that moves towards needing the research and debate skill in a job.

I found that doing just the tasks required and only visiting a few events during my college degree was enough to get me to be a senior member. If I was completing an 8 class degree. The events do not get you much in terms of reputation unless you do specifically what is requested.

There are only three ranks in each organization , each offering different cosmetics or items. As a New Member of The Debate Guild, you have access to:

  • Organization T-Shirt
  • Organization Poster

Once you get to the second rank of The Debate Guild which gives you the title of “Seasoned Member” you now have access to:

  • Earning extra credit for your Communications, History, Language, Psychology, and Economics classes when participating in The Debate Guild events

At the third and final rank, you become a “Senior Member” and have now have admittance to use the Debate Guild jacket, the TY84 Gold Plus Research Archive Machine, and the ability to convince your professor to help with a class or raise your grade.

If you are loyal to your university and what it is about, then perhaps the Spirit Corps is for you! Represent with your fellow students and Darby the Dragon by meeting up at the bar and doing keg stands, or going to Foxbury and de-facing their center statue (it is a creative arts college). You can think of the Ubrite Spirit Corps or the Foxbury Spirit Squad as essentially cheerleaders, or very similar to a club in what they do or represent.

No matter what organization you join, the first reward will always be the same, as will the name of the ranks. At “New Member” , you will receive:

Once you have completed all the tasks necessary for promotion to the second rank of “Seasoned Member” , you will receive:

  • The ability to perform the Ubrite Greeting

Once you find your way to the top and become a “Senior Member” of the Spirit Corps, you will can get a new outfit as well as a new way to represent your university. You will receive:

  • Darby the Dragon Costume
  • Dragon Pong Table

If neither of those suits your fancy then perhaps you’d like to paint happy little paintings with your friends. The Art Society requests the least amount of your time from your university studies and is great if you’re studying to have a career in painting.

New Member Rewards:

Seasoned Member Rewards:

  • Earn extra credit in Art History and Fine Art classes when participating in Art Society events

Senior Member Rewards:

  • Bob Russ’ Happy Little Easel
  • Creative skill gain is increased

Foxbury Institute Organizations

If creative arts isn’t your thing and instead you’d like to tinker with robots or go to space then perhaps you’d like to take a look at the Bot Savants, Brainiacs, or the Foxbury Spirit Squad in order to represent your university. The rewards are similar at the beginning for each organization but different towards the end.

Bot Savants

Do you like making robots? Having a brush with death because you have no idea what you’re doing and electrocute yourself? Perhaps you just enjoy making Servo and adding one to your household. This is the correct organization for you! Their schedule is relatively flexible and spread out across the week.

The rewards are excellent for this organization given you have a hankering for robotics or to build a Servo that can provide a wide array of benefits for the player.

New Member:

Seasoned Member :

  • Earn extra credit for Computer Science, Physics, and Villainy classes when participating in Bot Savant events.

Senior Member:

  • Party-Bot Gold Edition
  • Robotics Skill builds at a faster rate
  • Upgrades for any robotics parts cost significantly less


Very similar to the Ubrite Spirit Corps, this organization embodies the university for everything that it is. If you want to represent your university to its fullest then join up with all the cheerleaders in the Spirit Squad and go yarnbomb Ubrite’s lame book statue!

Seasoned Member:

  • Able to perform the Foxbury Greeting when meeting Sims
  • Foxbury’s Larry the Lobster Costume
  • Pincers Pong!

This organization is for those Sims that want nothing more than to feed the brain more knowledge. There is nothing to stop them from learning as gaining and harvesting more knowledge is their only pursuit in life or university. The Brainiacs are exactly that: brainiacs.

  • Able to earn extra credit in every class regardless of what it is.

Senior Member :

  • Brainiacs Plaque
  • Mental Skills are gained at a much faster rate

The Secret Society

The Secret Society identifies with neither university specifically, but rather just itself and university students that perform the correct ritual to be summoned amongst the ranks. To be accepted into the ranks of The Secret Society, there are certain things you must offer to your university’s statue for good grades. Then go back to your dorm and fall asleep. After you’ve fallen asleep you’ll be awoken by members of the society to be accepted. Those certain things to offer are:

  • Excellent quality food items
  • Pristine gardening harvestables
  • Rare crystals/metals

The Secret Society is also known as the “Order of Enchantment” and tasks may include such things as making offerings at the statue, participating in events for the Order, or tending to the sprite’s garden. There are ranks for the Order of Enchantment and that includes:

  • Order Robes
  • Ability to perform sprite attacks on other Sims
  • Gain ability to summon powerful sprites on yourself

The Order of Enchantment’s meet-up place is across from the local bar at Gibb’s Hill in the Ruins where you may find an interesting looking area.

Graduation in Sims 4


If it is your first time getting a degree then you will need to complete 12 classes or three terms if you’re taking 4 classes a term to graduate. Upon graduation, you will receive your final grade and determination on whether or not you passed with honors or if you failed. Not only that but you will be kicked out of your organization as that is only allowed for university members. Graduation takes place the following day around noon when it is announced to you.

You can choose to go to graduation or not, it does not matter and is entirely up to you. Either way, if you go, you will enter into a building (and disappear) and come out with several members and toss your caps in the air. Upon graduation, you will receive a graduation picture of yourself, your graduation certificate to hang on the wall, and a lot of incentives for any job that your degree was intended for. You will receive more vacation days more often and a massive pay raise. Now doesn’t that sound awesome!

Sims 4: How to Do Homework

10/11/2020, 10:50 am updated 02/22/2024, 11:53 pm

Sims 4: How to Do Homework

Just like in real life, homework in the Sims 4 is a boring chore and a necessary evil, unlike other fun activities such as writing music , redesigning your house , or diving underwater as a mermaid .

As long as your sim is studying, they’ll be doing homework.

This guide will show you some tips and tricks that will get your sim to finish their homework more quickly.

Sims 4: How to Do Homework: Children and Teenagers

This part of our “ Sims 4: How to Do Homework ” guide is dedicated to child and teenage sims.

If you want your child sim to perform well in school, you need to make sure they do their homework every day after school. They also need to go to school in a good mood.

Learning how to do homework in The Sims 4 is quite easy. Child sims will have an orange homework book in their inventory while Teenager sims will have a blue homework book in their inventory.

If, for whatever reason, you can’t find your sim’s homework book in their inventory, you can buy a new copy via the “purchase books” option that appears when you click on a bookshelf.

Your sims will have new homework every day from Monday to Friday. Doing homework in the Sims 4 is as simple as clicking on the homework in your sim’s inventory and choosing “Do homework.”

If you want to speed up the process, you can get an adult sim to help with the homework. Click on the sim you want to help and choose “Help with homework.” This will significantly speed things up.

If you want to boost your sim’s school performance, you can choose to do extra credit after finishing the homework. Select “Do extra credit” after completing the regular homework.

This will give your sim a boost for the next time they go to school. However, this option will only be available if your sim has a B or higher in school.

Another way to speed things up is to level all four of your child skills to level 3. This will unlock the option to “Breeze through homework.”

Getting your sim’s skills to level 7 will unlock an even faster option called “Dominate homework.”

The only thing to note here is that the aforementioned options are only available for child sims.

Sims 4: How to Do Homework at University

This part of our “ Sims 4: How to Do Homework ” guide is dedicated to university students.

Going to university is part of The Sims 4: University expansion. There’s also a new type of homework that your sim will need to do on a regular basis.

Your sim will have homework for every class they attend. They’ll need to finish their homework before going to that class again.

If you want to get an A+ in University, you’ll have to start doing homework even before going to your first set of classes.

Doing homework at university is similar to doing any other homework. Go to your sim’s inventory where you’ll find a black and white homework book.

Click on it and select the class you’re going to do the homework for.

There are a couple of ways you can speed up the process. The first way is to add the study spot lot trait to your house. The second way is to level up your sim’s research and debate skills.

The higher those skills are, the faster your sim will be at finishing homework and writing term papers.

Your Sim lost their homework book? You can get it back

  • by Mark Schusste

fix missing homework sims 4

In a previous post, we showed you what you can do to help your Sims complete their homework faster . But I recently came across a different homework-related issue that’s been bugging many users for quite some time.

Many players complained about their Sim’s homework suddenly disappearing from their inventory. Unfortunately, getting it back is not that obvious.

In this guide, we’ll explore why that happens and how you restore your Sim’s homework.

No, we’re not going to play Sherlock Holmes here.

Let’s dive right in!

Why is my Sim’s homework book missing?

Sims often drop their homework books on the floor. They rarely put their homework books in their inventories after doing their homework. As a result, they can’t find their notebooks when they get to class.

The quickest solution to find missing homework books in The Sims 4 is to look around the house or dorm.

If you’re lucky, you’ll quickly come across your Sim’s homework book and put it back in their inventory.

But sometimes, you won’t be able to find it.

Don’t be surprised if non-controlled roommates leave their homework books on the study table in the dorm.

What to do if you lose your homework book in The Sims 4

Buy new homework books.

You can buy grade school and university homework books for $1.

To buy a new homework book in The Sims 4, click on the bookcase or computer, select Order Books , and buy the homework book you want.

If you’re buying a new homework book for a child, have an adult purchase it. Then put the book on a table for the child to pick it up.

If you’re playing The Sims 4 Discover University and your Sim’s homework book is missing, you can buy a new one by clicking on the bookshelf.

If you’re on campus, you can go to the campus kiosk and purchase the homework you need.

Delete or sell your bookcases

Other users suggested that selling or deleting your current bookcases and buying new ones could solve the problem. Sometimes, your bookcases might get glitched.

This often happens when you move a Sim to a new household and bring their furniture and bookcases with them. Replacing the problematic bookcases should fix the problem.

Check other Sims’ inventories

Your Sim’s homework may have accidentally landed in the inventory of another Sim.

Many players confirmed they found their Sim’s homework in someone else’s inventory.

Answering your homework-related questions

Where is my Sim’s homework in The Sims 4?

To find your Sim’s homework in Sims 4, click on their inventory. You should find a black-and-white homework book. Click on it to have your Sims complete the assignment.

Do Sims in The Sims 4 University do homework?

Sims attending university in The Sims 4 Discover University do homework regularly as part of their class assignments. Lazy Sims that refuse to do their homework will get bad grades and won’t earn a Distinguished Degree .

That’s it. I hope you were able to get your Sim’s homework back.

Happy Simming!

How to Find Sims 4 Lost Homework: What To Do When Homework is Missing

Oh no, your sim’s homework is not in their inventory! Here’s how to quickly fix the sims 4 missing homework glitch.

what to do sims 4 lost homework

What to do if you lost homework in Sims 4?

There are really only two things you can do if your sim’s homework is lost: you can look for it by checking all the places missing homework usually ends up or you can buy new homework.

If you need more help than that, you’ll find it all in this post!

First, I’ll go over the best places to find lost homework then I’ll show you all the easy ways you buy new homework (university homework included!)

Places to Check for Sims 4 Missing Homework

The most obvious explanation is that it’s somewhere in or around your sim’s home.

Check all around your lot for the lost homework. Child sims love to stop doing their homework and leave it randomly in the middle of the floor!

how to do homework sims 4 university

If your sim was doing homework at a community lot , it’s likely they set it down and it’s somewhere around there.

If your sim tries to leave the community lot without bringing their homework, usually you’ll get a notification that it’s been returned to their inventory when your sim gets back home.

how to do homework sims 4 university

I know I already told you to look around your sim’s lot, but just in case you didn’t already, check any bookshelves around the house . It may have been put away in there.

And lastly, if your sim’s homework isn’t in their inventory, maybe it’s in someone else’s.

View the inventory of all the sims in your household to check that the lost homework wasn’t stolen!

How to Buy Homework in Sims 4

If you can’t find your sim’s homework notebook, there are 4 ways to buy new homework in Sims 4: bookshelf, computer, university kiosk, or build mode by unlocking hidden objects .

I’ll take you through how to buy new homework using each of these methods.

And in case you were worried, it doesn’t affect your sim’s homework completion level if they lose it and have to buy new. Your sim’s homework will still be listed as complete if they had completed it before it went missing!

To buy homework using a bookshelf, click ‘ purchase books ‘ and then select ‘ homework books ‘ from the drop-down categories.

This will allow you to buy all the possible homework types in Sims 4 including:

  • grade school homework
  • homework (high school)
  • university homework
  • soccer team playbook
  • teacher’s padfolio of student homework

Prices vary, but high school, university, and grade school homework is 1 simoleon.

Keep in mind that when you buy homework with the bookshelf, the new homework will be on the bookshelf.

After buying, you need to open the bookshelf and place it in your sim’s inventory.

how to do homework sims 4 university

To buy homework in sims 4 using the computer, you’ll follow almost exactly the same steps you did when buying with the bookshelf.

I have a mod in my game that makes the computer setup more organized, so my sim’s computer menu looks different. (You can find it at #32 on my list of must-have sims 4 mods !✨)

But all you have to do is find the ‘ purchase books ‘ option and then select ‘ homework books ‘ from the drop-down categories, just like you did with the bookshelf.

This time, the new homework will be put directly into your sim’s inventory!

how to do homework sims 4 university

If your sim is in college and lost their homework, you can buy new university homework at the kiosk located on campus in either Britechester or Foxbury.

how to do homework sims 4 university

Just find the kiosk and click ‘ buy university items ‘.

Then you’ll want to click on the book icon labeled ‘ academics ‘ to narrow the items down even further.

You can find the university homework by scrolling all the way down. Just buy it and it will appear in your sim’s inventory!

And finally, you can easily buy homework in build mode by unlocking all hidden objects using cheats.

If you don’t know how to do that, here’s my easy step-by-step guide on how to unlock hidden all items in build mode .

Once unlocked, search for homework in build mode and place it somewhere on your sim’s lot.

The Sims 4: 13 Best Worlds To Build In, Ranked

The sims 4: 13 best mods for jobs and careers, the sims 4: all skill cheats, quick links, all degrees that are offered, how to cheat degrees.

EA has added many different expansions to Sims 4 throughout the years. In fact, it may be one of the games with the most (and some of those expansions are amazing ). This means that players have countless amounts of fun to get into and explore, which makes the game even better than it originally was.

One thing players are able to have their Sims do is obtain degrees via Discover University . These degrees will help Sims gain better jobs, learn new skills, and just have a chance to see what university life has to offer. However, if Sims are taking too long to obtain their degree, players can cheat these degrees. Here's how to do that.

With all the available worlds in The Sims 4, it can be difficult to choose where to start building. This list of the best worlds to build in can help!

There are 13 degrees that are offered in the game. The degrees that fall under Bachelor of Arts come from the University of Britechester, while the degrees falling under Bachelor of Science come from the Foxbury Institute. Here are all the degrees:

  • Art History
  • Communications
  • Computer Science
  • Culinary Arts
  • Language and Literature

These mods significantly expand the career systems in The Sims 4, granting players more career options and greater input into existing jobs.

In order to cheat degrees, ensure that cheat codes are enabled. Once that is done, here are the codes for each of the degrees.

Art History Cheats

Biology cheats, communications cheats, computer science cheats, culinary arts cheats, drama cheats.

Skill cheats allow Sims 4 players to adjust their Skills without spending in-game hours working on them.

Economics Cheats

Fine art cheats, history cheats, language and literature cheats, physics cheats, psychology cheats, villainy cheats.

The Best Sims 4 Mods That Improve Child Gameplay

Children are a core part of The Sims 4 , yet the things that the player can do with them aren't as varied as one could think. The game has many strong points, but its long-time players have discovered that there are some aspects in which it could improve. For example, the children's school life and aspirations are limited to a certain degree.

The Sims 4: How to Find Lost Homework

Luckily, plenty of creative players have come up with mods that solve this problem and offer richer, more realistic child gameplay. From new school interactions to updated personality traits to a larger selection of hobbies, these mods help significantly improve child gameplay in The Sims 4 . Players who love the various stages of life but want this gameplay to be more fleshed-out can achieve the same, with the toddler and child stages being enhanced significantly with these TS4 child gameplay mods .

Updated on April 25, 2024, by Taylor Pittman: Almost anything is possible in The Sims 4, but there are definitely areas in which the game can be expanded. Luckily, a large mod community takes the time to create mods that add gameplay, items, and UI modifications for free. Children in The Sims 4 could use more gameplay surrounding them. Players who enjoy family dynamics may be disappointed with some classic activities and social interactions for kids missing. So, this list has been updated to include more mods that improve child gameplay in The Sims 4 .

Kids Can Paint

Create masterpieces from a young age.

  • Cepzid Creation

The Sims 4 has several features that weren't available in previous titles. On the other hand, it's missing things that may seem surprising. For example, while children could paint in The Sims 3 , it's not possible in TS4. This is remedied with Cepzid's Kids Can Paint mod. Children have the same access to easel sizes and picture types as adult Sims.

Children can show off their painting skills and create custom artwork that their parents can sell or hang up. This is a great way to have kids help with earning money if simoleons are running low. It is a great way for children to practice their creativity, and players can live out their artsy child protégé storylines.

Run a Lemonade Stand or Bake Sale

Earn spending money as a kid.

Children in The Sims 4 have limited after-school activities outside school clubs and the Scouts. They are also unable to get part-time jobs if players want them to "have their own money." However, running lemonade stands or selling baked goods are something kids do all the time in the real world.

Cepzid created a mod that allows kids to tend to a stand and sell lemonade or cakes to Sims on the lot. An adult or child can tend to the stand. Each stand has a list of flavors depending on what they sell. Children can run their own business and get some extra simoleons for the household.

Create a Chore Schedule

  • LittleMsSam

Children need a lot of time for learning, playing, and making friends but sometimes they have to do things they may not find as fun. Household chores are part of life regardless of age, but they are a good way to teach responsibility and help parents with some household tasks. Players with Parenthood can have their parent Sims tell their kids to do things like clean up, make the table, or do their homework.

Having to physically command your Sims to do this every time gets tiresome, but LittleMsSam created a mod that has children do chores automatically using a schedule. Sims can set a chore schedule using a calendar from Parenthood or Discover University . They can assign cleaning duty hours or days ahead of time with the mod.

Get More Children's Social Interactions

The interactions that a child has in The Sims 4 have increased quite a bit since the early days of the game when the toddler phase wasn't even a part of the game. EA has addressed many complaints with this game , but there are still some people who feel that children don't really have too many interactions to mess around with in the game, which doesn't really feel all that great to mess around with.

Thankfully, modders have picked up the slack and added their fair share of unique and custom interactions into the game to make it easier for players to enjoy this phase of a Sim's life. The Child Life mod does exactly that and allows players to help these children feel more lifelike and engaging, talking about stuff and engaging in activities that are appropriate for someone their age.

Homework Tweaks

Do homework faster.

Homework is a crucial part of any child's life, with these Sims needing to do well in school by completing their homework regularly and improving their grades. Failing to do so can lead to a poor graduation that doesn't really benefit a developing Sim in any way and can actively hamper their development in the long run.

The Sims 4: How To Make Money (Without Resorting To Cheats)

However, homework is always a chore, and The Sims 4 is no exception to this golden rule. Watching a child sit down and do homework for hours on end as their needs become critical is never fun, and players would ideally like a way to improve their time management by letting children do their homework faster and more efficiently. The Faster Homework mod achieves precisely this task, allowing children to focus their task on more fun activities that players can actually be invested in.

Kiddoddle Job Listings

Odd jobs for children.

Childhood is a time for less work and more play, but every now and then kids want a chance to get some cash. ItsKatato's Kiddoodle Job Listings is a career mod that allows child Sims to take on odd jobs. The odd jobs require the Island Living Expansion Pack to work properly because it uses the same system.

Odd jobs that kids can do include easy things like babysitting, dog walking, mowing lawns, phone repair, and more. The jobs available depend on the child's skills. There are also two versions of the mod: low pay rates for authenticity or high pay rates if players want their kids to bring in big bucks.

Teens and Children Can Cash In On Allowance

To get kids used to money management, some families might put into place an allowance system. This is also possible in The Sims 4 thanks to this Allowance mod . Players can have the household family kids receive a weekly allowance of a specific amount.

Better yet, the allowance will be dependent on how well the child is doing at school and if they're showing good behavior. The allowance is stored in a separate money account, which further increases immersion for this mod.

Spend The Weekend With

Children can visit their relatives.

Those playing a legacy might like the idea of sending their household children out for the weekend to visit grandparents for instance. However, playing this out separately doesn't really have the same effect, since it forces players to actually play out the weekend away as a child, which gets tedious.

This mod lets players simply summon a family member, or anyone really, to pick up someone from the household. They can then stay indefinitely and will be added to that household's roster until they return. It's definitely a great gameplay mod for children in The Sims 4 for those who want to focus on other household members for a bit.

Adult Skills For Kids

Children can learn more skills.

There are a ton of skills that kids on The Sims 4 simply don't have access to until they age up. This isn't realistic, however, since many of these "adult" skills like fishing are actually very doable for children to learn in real life.

The Sims 4: Growing Together - Infant Quirks and Their Effects

The Adult Skills For Kids mod fixes this oversight in the game. This gameplay mod for children in The Sims 4 allows kids to access any adult skills, while also developing the unique child skills in the game. Learning instruments, writing, video gaming, and even robotics, are now completely possible for children, too.

Foster Family

Become a foster parent.

One thing that's lackluster in The Sims 4 is the variety in the types of families players can have. Foster families are simply not a thing in the game unless players simulate it using the adoption system.

The Foster Family mod allows players to foster not just toddlers and children, but pets as well. It's a fantastic and pretty immersive and storytelling-friendly mod for players who want to play out those foster family stories in a realistic manner.

Grow Up Aspiration

Parent influence will affect children.

A lot of people might not know what they want to focus on in their future when they're still children. That's why the aspirations for children in The Sims 4 can feel a bit narrow and limiting. They usually focus on developing one skill, such as artistic abilities or athleticism. The Grow Up aspiration mod fixes this.

If the player gives this aspiration to a child Sim, they will be asked to develop multiple skills instead of just a single one. What's more, they even get valuable aspiration points for doing their homework, which always comes in handy.

Spellcaster Child Can Use Magic

Child no longer have to wait to cast spells.

For The Sims 4 players who love Harry Potter and want to have their own child wizard, this mod gives them the opportunity to achieve it. Under normal circumstances, children can't use magic in the game, even when they're spellcasters just like their parents. They have to wait until their teen years, and only then can they start using magic.

Project Rene Can Make Up for What The Sims 4 Lacks in Occults

This gameplay mod for children in The Sims 4 allows the children to use magic as well. They can't do every single thing that adult spellcasters are capable of , but the range of their powers is still wide enough to make for fun gameplay with the young wizards.

Random Traits And Aspirations

Leave traits up to chance.

In the game, the players choose what aspirations and character traits children will have when they age up from toddlers to kids. But those players who would like to randomize the process can use this mod.

The child will get randomly chosen traits as well as a random aspiration. As a result, the child may be very different from their parents, which will lead to some interesting interactions. This mod also adds more realism to the game since, in real life, parents don't get to choose what their children will be like and what they will want to do.

Sleepover Event

Host friends for a slumber party.

A lot of children love having sleepovers with their friends. Unfortunately, The Sims 4 base game didn't include this event, but a mod added it in. It allows the children to organize a new event: a sleepover with their friends. It not only allows kids to have more fun but also to build better friendships with other children. Players get a similar Slumber Party event if they have the Growing Together Expansion pack.

It's a valuable integration that will allow players to help their children form great memories with their friends. After all, what Simmer hasn't been a part of a sleepover where they've goofed around with their friends and talked at length about a variety of topics? This mod just aims to bring that experience into The Sims 4 base game and does so pretty effectively.

Children Can Walk Dogs

Cute interactions between kids and dogs.

Taking care of a pet as a young child is a good way to learn some more responsibilities. Yet The Sims 4 doesn't allow children to walk their family dogs. A mod exists that gives children the option to walk their dogs .

The Sims 4: Growing Together: Midlife Crisis Guide

Walking dogs helps build the relationship between the child and their pet. It also gives parents some extra alone time, as they might appreciate the fact that their kid is helping them to take care of their family dog. It also helps that children get additional responsibility points for walking their dogs.

Education System Bundle

Add homeschooling and more.

  • KawaiiStacie

Going to school can be amazing, but it's not for everyone. Not every child feels challenged in school or can find friends easily. This mod takes this into consideration and allows both children and teenagers to be homeschooled instead.

This will give the family the chance to design their own schedule to a certain degree. It also means the child will be much more physically present in the household than before. As a result, the player will get the chance to enjoy playing with the young Sim's character more.
