There’s never a perfect time to go back to school, especially when you’re juggling a job, a family and a thousand other responsibilities. But before you decide a degree is not feasible, see what we tell people who face challenging life situations.
“I’m caring for a loved one.”
Your loved one is so lucky to have a thoughtful caring person like you. We understand you may feel overwhelmed by these extra responsibilities and want to delay your education. Know that during our 30 years of offering adult degree programs, many students taking care of loved ones have felt this way. However, once enrolled, their fears were quickly relieved. They found our professors are just like them, with loved ones to care for and lives outside the classroom. These students also found that because they gave so much of themselves to their loved ones, they got immeasurable value from school and the time they took to do something for themselves and their future.
We want you to be the best student and caretaker you can be, which is why our flexible and affordable degree programs meet the needs of today’s busy adult learners. Averett University offers multiple options to accelerate or decelerate your degree as needed, and a dedicated student success coach will be there for you every step of the way. We mean it when we say, you’ve got this and we’ve got you.
We know the pain of moving. If we weren’t so busy helping our students, we’d volunteer to move those boxes right alongside you! We also know the ordeal of moving may have you thinking twice about pursuing a degree. Not to worry. Many students have gone through the same thing while enrolled at Averett University—and they’re glad they did.
You’ll have a few things going for you at Averett. First, we designed our flexible, affordable degree programs especially for busy adults who have a lot going on in their lives, and you’ll have multiple ways to adjust your degree program based on current circumstances. Second, you’ll have a dedicated student success coach to help you navigate the ups and downs of school, moving and transitioning to a new home. Finally, once you enroll at Averett University, you’ll always be part of our family, no matter where you are. We offer career services to all students and alum, so if you ever need help, networking contacts or advice, we’ll be here for you.
Our advice: don’t delay
Life is full of twists and turns. Pursuing a worthwhile goal, such as earning a college degree, can help you power through the challenges. It’s always the right time to go after your dreams.
