Five Steps to a College Education in 2008

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2008

So you have been on that merry-go-round of indecision about returning to school. And now you have finally decided that this will be your year. No more delays or excuses — just action.

Well, you have picked a great year, 2008, to get on the bandwagon and change your destiny. Educational technology is in your favor; and online schools are the cat’s meow.

So how do you begin the path to your dream of acquiring a college diploma? Here are five helpful steps:

  1. Choose an accredited online school. One way to do this is to go online and use a reputable college directory, like Directory of Schools. There, you will find listings of colleges — both online and traditional — with easily accessible links to college information forms. It is a user-friendly way to peruse numerous career fields and find helpful information on your computer.
  2. Fill out online information forms at Directory of Schools, or other reputable educational websites, for colleges, universities and trade schools that offer the program in which you are interested. These schools are delighted to send additional information. Then, you may contact them with any further questions. A friendly voice on the other end of the phone will guide you through the application and registration process.
  3. At the college of your choice, pursue financial aid. There are a numerous federal and private financial aid resources — including scholarships and low-interest loans. Each college has an office that handles these inquiries and helps potential students to determine their eligibility for aid.
  4. Once you have been accepted into a college program, prepare to work diligently. Realize that success in college will involve some elbow grease. You will have to sacrifice several hours of your time each week per class to study and complete homework assignments.
  5. Hang in there for the long haul, even when the  school work becomes challenging. Take advantage of any help that is available from the school – including tutors, teachers, online libraries, and counselors. Do not give up; just ask for help. The college has counselors that are available to insure your success.

Get off of the merry-go-round and enroll in an online degree program in 2008. After all, this is your year.
