As you begin to tackle your college coursework, you’ll soon realize that the 3 or 4 credit hours for each class you are taking quickly extends to 6-8 hours per week when you account for class time, study time, and homework time. Multiply that by the number of classes you are taking this semester and it quickly becomes 18-32+ hours each week that you spend on school. With school hours equating to a part-time job and your full- or part-time job on your plate, you may start to wonder how you will ever fit it in. This can get extremely overwhelming at times, but there is a way to balance it. Keep these tips in mind as you work your way to financial stability and academic excellence.
