Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Education

It is back-to-school time, and Western International University (West), a subsidiary of Apollo Education Group, Inc., is offering tips to help the millions of adult students heading back to the classroom to earn their degree. Western International University offers the following tips for adults considering going back to school:

Choose a Program that Fits Your Schedule – Thanks to online delivery and flexibility in scheduling, students don’t need to wait until a semester break to get started. For instance, at West, courses start on a monthly basis so students can start when it works for them.

Look for Affordable Options – Cost is an important factor in determining whether one can afford to pursue a degree. It is important for prospective students to research program costs, speak with advisors and explore financial aid opportunities and possible tuition reimbursement programs from employers. Financial planning is critical to making sure you can continue on with your education and complete your degree program.

Don’t go it alone. Whether through family, friends or colleagues, create a support group to help you reach your goal. Talk with that support group about ways they can help your obligations including getting your family involved in your studies. For more information, visit west.edu.
