If you’re thinking of going back to school, no matter what your current age or how long it’s been since you were out of school, the Austin area has more resources than nearly anywhere else in the state. In fact, all of Texas a whole has a very strong record for helping adults who want to go back to school or continue their education.
If you’ve made the decision to give it a try, Round Rock Higher Learning Education Center is a great choice. Here are some additional things to consider before going back to school:
• Seek financial aid- there are many grants, loans and additional programs to help adults who want to go back to school. It never hurts to first apply and see what type of financial aid or assistance you might be eligible for.
• Manage your stress and anxiety- have a clear plan for how you will manage stress and anxiety before you even sign up for continuing education.
• Have a good support system- when you have a good support system, it will help you get through the challenges of going back to school as an adult so that you can find success that you seek.
Going back to school as an adult can be a stressful time but with programs and schools like RRHEC, it doesn’t have to be as difficult.
