Not all college classes look like this
Lecture, or face-to-face, classes are one way to achieve your educational goals, and are preferred by some students. But here are some things to consider:
- Are you close to a college campus?
- Do you have time to go to class at least two days a week?
- Can you arrange classes around your work schedule?
- Who will take care of your kids?
- Will transportation and related costs be a hardship?
