Returning Adult

  • Identify a support group – whether friend or family – to encourage you in pursuit of your academic goals.
  • Be familiar with careers and starting salaries associated with your intended major.
  • Speak to an advisor to develop a plan for timely degree completion. Be sure to inquire about placement tests, credit for prior learning, and any options to help you accelerate your path to degree.
  • Make an informed decision about part-time study: It may allow you to work more, but statistically speaking lowers your odds of completing your degree.
  •  Research and apply for Financial Aid.
