Are You a Nontraditional Student? We Have Something Just for You!

If you’re a nontraditional student, you’ll probably face some nontraditional challenges as you head back to school. Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered! Download the Charter College Back to School Survival Guide for the nontraditional student now and get ready to build a better future.

But what is a nontraditional student? Well, it could mean lots of different things. It might mean that you’re older than 24 or the first in your family to attend college. Maybe you have a GED instead of a high school diploma. Or work full time and attend school only part time. Are you a single parent or a current or former member of the military? If any of these describe you, then you’re nontraditional too! But you’re not alone. Three-quarters of students today are nontraditional.1

Like them, you may need to overcome obstacles that those kids heading straight to college from high school on mom and dad’s dime don’t.  For example, what happens if you’re taking online courses and your technology fails? You need a plan to get online, every time. Or maybe you’ve never even taken an online class and you’re not really familiar with the ins and outs of the technology. Our Back to School Survival Guide will give you some practical guidance and tips for what-if scenarios that might happen to you.

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.”   Booker T. Washington

Our guide will show you how to:

1.      Research and enroll in a program that’s right for you

2.      Set yourself up for success

3.      Build a support network on-campus, online and at home

4.      Prepare for your academic achievement

5.      Don’t get sidelined by life’s what-ifs

6.      Build a portfolio to get ready for your new career

Check out the Back to School Survival Guide today and prepare for your future.
