How to work a fulltime job and go to college

If you must work, then take the time to do your best in school. If you can work nights or put in more hours on weekends, it will be easier to take required classes. If you are considering going back to graduate school, ask yourself these questions first, then use these five reasons to consider working. Unfortunately for many, the idea of going back to school or completing a certification while working a full time job is daunting.

Check with your financial aid advisor, but in general, your financial aid supports half time study.

Although difficult, it is quite possible to balance your family, job, and obligations while studying for a degree or certification. I've tried to work full time and go to school full time and I ended up dropping that semester. I guess it depends how well you handle stress and need sleep. I know some people who only sleep a few per night and are OK with that, but some people absolutely cannot do that. However, Ive learned that in order to get a strong grasp of the material I need to study a little at a time.

Is it time I give up on college and go find a full-time job.

I suggest you rethink that plan, either go to school part time, or work part time. Although it does take extra effort to hold down a job and still get good grades, you can do it. It is just difficult and stressfull as college is in itself a full time job. Planning out a college budget can help you determine how much you will need to work to make ends meet. In this situation, you should pursue a conversation with your supervisor and share your thoughts and feelings.
