Tips for Going Back to School as an Adult

One of the hardest things about going back to school as an adult learner is not knowing where to start, especially if you are new to the country. Many of the students that come into meet with their Admission Advisors tell us they simply did not know where or how to find information to all the questions they had!

Questions like –
“Should I go to a college or university?
“What program should I take?”
“Will I be able to handle going to school full time?”
“How will I pay for school?”
“What options do I have if I want to continue working?”

Investing in education is one of the most significant investments you will make in your lifetime. Not only because of the money you will have to spend but also in what your diploma or degree can do for your life. So how can you manage this major transition in your life while juggling your day-to-day responsibilities? How can you juggle the demands of being a student with the demands of a day job and a family?

Here are a few tips to help you make the most of your time in college:

Get in touch and do your research

Contact the admissions department of the college and set up an appointment with a Student Admissions Advisor. They will be able to help you review the requirements of the various programs.

Time Management is Key 

School takes a significant amount of time. Use apps on your phone to help keep you on track and hold you accountable. Learn to maximize your time by multitasking and balance your time between your studies, work and family.
