#9. Going to school part-time seems to take forever.
Going to school part-time seems to take forever.I said: Know that you are not alone... one of these days, you WILL have completed your studies. Think of the long-term picture and try to be patient. ALSO: consider amping things up and going full-time, IF you have enough money and/or support.
But it actually is not so easy. If you are not careful, you could lose interest in school. If there is ANY way to go full-time for awhile and just get it done, you should. BUT if you can't, you need to find the motivation to keep on going.
A Nontraditional Student group may provide you with the support you need. There are some listed on the Nontraditional Student website, under your state. Just scroll down until you see the state, and click on your area. There are also pages for other areas.
On the plus side, taking classes a little at a time MIGHT free you up to do better, with more study time. And you will have the chance, hopefully, to get to know your teachers better.
Here are some articles to help you while you go back to school part-time. Some are time savers, others advice articles. I hope they are helpful!
Get to know your college professors (this goes for all teachers too)
Some study and final project tips
Textbook options include renting, e-books, more.
