Set Yourself Up For Success 

  • Understand how adult learning is different

Adult learners are result oriented and do well when learning is connected to their lives. 

  • Prepare to seek support for skills that you haven't used in awhile. 

Use the resources available on campus to freshen up on skills such as reading, math, and studying. 

  • Don’t rush your timeline

It’s better to take a few credits each semester and keep up than to overload yourself with school, work, family, and financial responsibilities.

  • Online Classes

Taking classes online is a flexible way to get a college education, but it does require self-motivation and self-management.
