Returning to college at middle age is most challenging because by the time we reach this age, our lives are already quite full and demanding. With family obligations, careers, social lives, fitting in college can be really hard. Remember the reason you decided to go back to school in the first place if you you’re your discipline and motivation slipping. Good time management skills such as setting goals, timelines and being disciplined about sticking to your schedule will be extremely important for your success.


Succeeding in today’s online learning environment can no doubt be a challenge. There are those who prefer, and need, the physical interaction with fellow students and instructors for a better engaged learning experience. However, remote learning can also be a flexible choice for those that have jobs, children, families, and life in general, to attend to. The key is to maintain a balance in those areas and realize that the journey is not limited to being alone. Proper planning, determination, organization, focus and executing on those plans can help ensure a successful remote learning environment.
