Mature Students: Make Your Back to School Plan

Going back to school can be both exciting and scary. As a student, you’re going to have classes and homework. But for an adult student, there’s more to going back to school than studying.

Other people may depend on you. That’s one of the reasons you’re going back to school. You want a better life for yourself and your family.

To know where you are going and what it takes to get there, it’s a good idea to have a plan. A plan makes it easier to see how far you’ve come and where you still need to go. A plan will help you get through this change in your life.

For each step you need to take to get ready for school, enter what you've done and what you need to do, then set a date to complete it. This will help you focus on your strengths, your goals, your needs, and your resources. Alis has several resources to help you with any topics you're not sure about:

If you have new questions, add them to the end of your plan, then find the answers.
