Responsibilities like raising children and working full-time can cause some adults to postpone finishing college degrees. For busy parents and working adults, going back to school at 30 may work best if they take classes on a part-time basis.

To succeed in school, it is important for the busy non-traditional student to practice good time management, prioritization and organization skills. For example, you may develop a schedule that only requires you to attend class on Tuesdays. You may also decide to complete class projects on a Saturday afternoon. The important thing is that you stick to the schedule as often as possible.

Cengage Learning also advises that you keep work and school separate. 1 Avoid focusing on school while you’re at work and thinking about work while you are at school or studying. If you let your employer know that you are going back to school, your employer may adjust your work schedule to better accommodate your classes.

Schools like Point University have developed degree programs with the non-traditional student in mind. Point’s ability to offer flexible schedules for working adults even when full-time is one of the many perks of attending a University that offers diversified programs. Through Point University’s Hybrid Program, 2 a non-traditional student could take one on-campus class at a time or take classes online. Because of Point’s format, working adults can go to school full-time with flexible evening schedules.

Point University’s main campus is located in West Point, Georgia. Hybrid degree programs may be available at campuses located in other cities like Atlanta, Georgia; Peachtree City, Georgia; Savannah, Georgia; McDonough, Georgia; and Birmingham, Alabama. The mission of the distance education programs in Georgia and Alabama is to provide students with an infrastructure that delivers equitable, quality learning opportunities for all citizens.
