Four Reasons Why Fall is a Great Time to Get Back to School

When summer winds down and the seasons change, there’s usually a feeling of renewal in the air. Days start to get a little shorter, jackets and scarves come back out of the closet, even the trees turn over a new leaf—why shouldn’t you too? While fall is traditionally back-to-school season for grade schoolers, adult learners shouldn’t feel left out. If you’ve ever considered getting back in the classroom to begin or complete your degree, Tiffin University offers an excellent opportunity to balance learning with a busy schedule.

Registration for TU’s fall semester closes in mid-August. As you consider going back to school, here are four great reasons why fall is a great time to hit the books.

Make education a family affair.

If you’re a parent, your child’s social calendar probably goes into overdrive in the summer when school is out. Shuttling kids to camps, going on family vacations, even helping teens maintain a summer job can all take a toll on your schedule, and it’s hard to find time to invest in yourself. When school ramps back up in the fall for your young ones, it’s also a great time for you to take advantage of a schedule that’s in synch. You can learn together and support each other as a family—and you set a great academic example for the youngsters.

Fall is just the starting point.

When you enroll in college courses for the fall, you can get the summer fun out of your system and have a serious goal to work toward in the new season. Tiffin University’s flexible online degree programs mean you can begin in the fall but take as much time as you need to complete your degree. You can log in to your courses any time — whether it’s in the wee hours of the night after you’ve finished your workday or during some downtime on the weekend.

Financial aid is still available.

Some students assume that since the fall semester draws close to the end of the year, academic assistance is off the table. The good news is that’s simply not true; if you’re in need of financial aid like a grant or student loan, starting college in the fall won’t hold you back. Federal financial aid funding is available to you for the current academic year and the following year, so there’s no need to wait until the new year to start school.

There’s no time like the present.

If going back to school has always been on your to-do list, fall is a great time to actually start getting things done. Rather than delaying for another semester, which can turn into another year, just go for it! Tiffin University’s admission process is easy to navigate and an advisor is with you every step of the way. Thanks to financial aid assistance and a highly flexible course schedule, you’ll be happy that you didn’t wait any longer to get back into school. Most importantly, you’ll be doing something for yourself. Making an investment, keeping your word or proving it to yourself or your loved ones are all worthy reasons to start learning today.

Fall enrollment at TU brings a renewed chance take the important first step in improving your earning potential and education. If you’re ready to accept the challenge and get started, get connected to an admissions team member who can tell you more about our online degree programs.
