Aimed squarely at single parents, senior citizens, or adult students who are changing careers or going to college or graduate school, this book examines the issues and challenges unique to adults who want to go back to school despite the pressing responsibilities of families, work, and mortgages. These 501 strategies cover everything from finding and winning scholarships intended especially for adult students, obtaining financial support from employers, and negotiating with colleges for more financial aid to taking advantage of educational tax breaks, benefiting from government-subsidized student loans, and exploring cheaper alternatives to expensive colleges. Twenty inspirational stories of adult students who have used creative ways to pay for their educations are also included.
