Never Too Late

The Adult Student's Guide to College

This book offers practical advice for adult students pursuing a college degree while also juggling work, raising a family, and managing other responsibilities. Infused with charts and checklists, as well as personal stories from adult students, it engagingly addresses questions like: What should I study? How can I afford college? Which college should I attend? What campus resources are available to me? The "non-traditional" college student is the new normal, and this book is a comprehensive resource for ambitious adults seeking a degree.

This book gave me so much information on starting school again. It gave me ideas for getting school work done while working.

I am 33-years-old, work full time and recently started (1 class) college! I loved this book. It was encouraging in a lot of ways. They answered a lot of the questions that I had about how to balance the costs and time of having both a career and your education. I highly recommend this book for any adult who is thinking about taking college classes.

I’m so excited to go back to school after reading this book. Being a single mom with a son i was afraid I’d never be able to go back to school. But I have a sense of proud now

Despite the appealing title, this book lacks substance and the author clearly displays some disregard for the more traditional approaches to education. Perhaps I was expecting a more inspirational book, but in the end I realized that this title was produced with a particular strategy to capitalize on the current adult education market for the fundamental and dominant purpose of education these days: profit.

For older adults, this book was spectacular. It’s an easy read, filled with exactly what do. Takes the fear out of later in life learning. It was a joy to read!

This book has been written for the Non-Traditional student; it addresses how to choose an institution, reviewed accelerated credit options to consider and what institutions offer them, as well as military options. I appreciated the stories from the adult students. I recommend this if you are an adult who is considering going back to school.
