Back to the Books: How to be a Successful Adult College Student

Attention, employees thinking about going back to school: register for the “Back to the Books” workshop, brought to you by Faculty and Staff Career Services. The workshop is designed for employees with high school degrees interested in starting or restarting their associates’ or 4-year degree. U.Va.’s education benefits will be explained.

Speakers will discuss how to: decide what school and program is right for you; prepare for placement tests; develop a personal support network as a student; and discuss your learning plan and class schedule with your boss. The event also includes a panel of U.Va. employee-students who tell it like it is.

Attendance is open to all academic and Health System employees, including classified, wage and temporary staff. The workshop is offered only once a year. Academic staff with supervisor permission may record attendance at Human Resources events as hours worked. There is no charge but registration is required.
