Learning Center Experience
When an adult goes back to school to pursue a degree,
his or her experience may differ from that of someone coming right out of
college. Conflicting priorities and more complicated life circumstances may
present a challenge. You can help yourself overcome such challenges by putting
it all into perspective.
At Kaplan University we
have military students, working parents, single parents,
students with full-time jobs, and some with more than one job. Each one of
those circumstances can bring a set of challenges when attending school,
whether it’s a sick child or a new priority or project at work that requires
more attention. The chance of time conflict is simply greater in these
Yet we’ve seen students
address these challenges with a great deal of drive and resolve, staying focused
on attaining their educational and associated career goals. An online institution like ours offers the benefit of a
flexible schedule. But while you can get on your computer anytime, online
learning requires the same amount of time and commitment as a traditional
college. And getting fewer hours of sleep in order to complete assignments
requires the sort of discipline and commitment adult learners often have a lot
Adult learners also often
understand that challenges need to be directly encountered to be overcome. Confronting
challenges is key to putting things in perspective, regardless of how far outside
your comfort zone doing so may be. For example, reaching out at a time of need,
such as when you are behind in assignments or you don’t understand the subject
matter, can be difficult for less experienced students who don’t understand
that there’s nothing wrong with asking for help. In those circumstances, it’s
important to communicate with teachers and advisors and take advantage of
available resources and support. It’s not a sign of weakness to do so; it’s a
sign of maturity and commitment to goals.
Challenges don’t usually
stop those driven to succeed. Those with resolve to attain the end goal will put
things in perspective and address difficulties head on. It’s exciting to hear
from those who have done just that. A blog post at the end of last year describes
how a woman from North Dakota worked on her fifth degree while having her husband
in the hospital and a young child to care for. That could have proven too much
for anyone, but she puts things in perspective with her end goal of graduating in
mind. She provides some advice in her blog post that you might find of value.
