Don’t wait too long before going back to college

6/11/13

When you’re weighing a few options, like whether you should go back to college, one of the best ways to come to a decision is to talk to others in your shoes. Most of you are probably familiar with the MTV reality show, “Teen Mom,” and recently, cast member Leah Calvert came out admitting that putting your college plans on hold for too long can be detrimental.

The stay-at-home mom of three told Dr. Drew Pinsky that she does want to go back to school, but for now, her responsibilities lie with her children – the youngest is 4 months old, according to Hollywood Life. The news source reports that fortunately, MTV has set up trust funds for the kids of the teen moms, but that doesn’t resolve the issue that these moms have not completed their education.

Young moms like Calvert can benefit from mapping out a clear path back to college, with help from resources easily found online. With highlights on the time it will take to get their degree, the overall cost, their options for schools and ultimate goals, these valuable tools can give aspiring students a clearer vision of where their future is going.

One of the most logical ways for adult learners to ease back into school is by taking a few classes at a time. Most community colleges and universities offer night courses, as well as a variety of online programs, which students can squeeze into their already busy schedules filled with work and raising a family.

Whether you’re planning on restarting your education as soon as possible or just want to set up a timeline for the future ahead, you can use BacktoLearn.com’s helpful Adult Education Guide to take you there, one step at a time.
