How to Survive As a Nontraditional Student
More people are taking on the role of nontraditional student than ever before. Along with that role comes all the challenges of being a nontraditional student.
And since I've been there, done that, and earned those degrees, I thought I'd share some of the things that worked for me.
Planning ahead is a major key to surviving as a nontraditional student. Without learning to properly plan you are toast. Hang it up, don't waste your time, energy, or money.
Planning ahead is important but, for the nontraditional student, it is the difference between success in college and flunking out.
Figure Out What's Really Important
If you're going to take a life that was already crammed with responsibilities and add in the major one of being a student, then you're going to have to let some stuff go by the wayside.
Ask For Help with Those Things Which Need To Be Done
You can... and should... not only ask, but expect, help from your spouse and children. They can help with their own laundry, the everyday chores, and cooking.
Figure Out What Can Slide
It's just as important to figure out what's NOT important.
Resolve to Do Whatever It Takes
It takes for the few years you're pursuing your higher education.
