Back to school: Tips for earning a degree while working

​Yakima Herald Republic - BOLD TYPE: Women in Business

bold type - back to school

In an ideal situation, people graduate from high school, go straight to college, earn a degree and then they immediately move on to a satisfying, high-paying career.

In reality, people often must follow a different path for higher education.

The percentage of older students attending college is rising as they return to school to boost existing skill sets or to learn a new career. In 2012, 38 percent of all undergraduate U.S. college students were older than 21, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Many of those are considered nontraditional students who graduated from high school many years earlier or who are returning to college after several years of hiatus.

A major challenge for many of these nontraditional students is juggling a job with their desire for education.

Fortunately, in the Yakima area these students have several viable college options and a wide range of study possibilities. Yakima Valley Community College, Central Washington University, Charter College, Perry Technical Institute and Heritage University provide education opportunities ranging from shortterm vocational training to graduate degrees to online degree programs.​
