Can I Really Go Back to School?

Can I Really Go Back to School?

Deciding to go back to school is a big step. There are so many exciting opportunities that open up with a degree in business, healthcare, or technology, but there are also some potential obstacles that could be holding you back from following your dreams.

  • How will I make the commute to class?
  • Who will watch my kids?
  • How much time am I going to have to commit?
  • Will I actually get a job when I graduate?

When taken all at once, these issues can be overwhelming. Let’s look at them one-by-one, and you’ll find that each issue has a fairly simple solution. As Laozi wrote, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

Metro fare and bus tickets can add up. If this is a burden for you, you could be eligible for reimbursement for the cost of your monthly pass. You also have the option of taking one of our free shuttles if you live in certain designated areas. Don’t worry about crazy LA parking, either. Student parking is easily available in parking facilities and areas surrounding our campus.
Being a parent comes with a lot of responsibility. Many of our students want to obtain their degree in order to provide a better life for their children. But someone has to look after your kids while you’re in class, and finding affordable childcare can be difficult. Our student services department goes above and beyond to provide students with referrals to top-quality childcare facilities and nurseries in the area.
How long will it take to graduate, and how much time a week am I going to have to commit? We’ve got good news on both fronts. Our programs have many different options to make it as easy as possible to fit class into your busy schedule.
