Can I work while attending school?
We understand that many of our adult students need to work. However, being a full time student and having a full time job can be exhausting leaving little time for real study. It is important to understand that for every credit hour of study an additional 2 hours of preparation are expected. Example: A 3- credit lecture class over a 16 week semester equals 3 hours of class work per week plus an additional 6 hours of preparation.
