Going back to school is both exciting and a bit stressful.
Exciting because you look forward to learning new skills and getting a career-boost.
Stressful because you have plenty on their plate already. Adding homework and studying to their normal job and family to-do list? Oh, my.
Ironically, that goes double if you started college at some point but left without a degree. If your first attempt didn't exactly end with a win, what will happen this time?
Here's the good part. You're coming back with a new toolkit, with experience, skills, and a maturity you didn't have the first time around. You can succeed.
Before you start, however, you must answer a basic, but not obvious, question first. You don't have to answer it alone; a career center or admissions office can help - go ahead and contact them to set up an appointment.
