Choose a college
Say the word "student," and many people will think of kids. School kids on a playground; high school kids hanging out by their lockers; there’s even the common phrase "college kids" to talk about young adults at a university.
But at an online university built for busy working adults like WGU, the connection between "student" and "kids" is a different one.
Parent. Grandparent. Stay-at-home mom. Stay-at-home dad. Working mom. Working dad. Mother-to-be. Father-to-be.
There are lots of ways WGU students and kids go hand-in-hand—and going back to school with kids can be tough.
Luckily, you’re not alone—thousands of other WGU students have had (and are currently having) the experience of going to college as a parent, and they have some great advice, insights, tips, and tricks to share with you (and with each other on WGU’s Facebook page).
