Going back to college as an adult can be a challenge due to the priorities and scheduling of other aspects of life. Online courses offered by Linfield College’s Online and Continuing Education offer an opportunity for individuals facing such a challenge. Jeremy was able to work in online classes so that he could work toward his higher education of an online accounting certificate while maintaining his lifestyle with his family.
“Some of those obstacles were having a family, mortgage, activities that I needed to participate in, and timing issues. So, could I make it to a class, you know, twice a week in the evenings. With kids at the age where they are enrolled in soccer and basketball and other activities, it was difficult to anticipate that I would actually be able to make that leap to going to an actual class. So when on-line classes became available that gave me the opportunity to overcome one of those biggest obstacles.”
