Online classes and schools – Non-traditional students can really benefit from online offerings, too. Even though they may cost more in tuition, the courses can be completed around your schedule. You may not need to pay for a babysitter or for transportation to and from campus. You don’t necessarily need to attend an online college either. Most colleges and universities offer some amount of distance education courses so talk to your advisor or check out the class schedule for more information on what’s available.
For non-traditional students, parents may not be there to foot the bill so you’ve got to rely on yourself to deal with the financial challenges of college. The good news is you can get through it and will have a brighter financial future as a result.
