Adult Continuing Education: Can You Recoup the Cost?

If you\'re stuck in your career and want a different choice, continuing your education might be the perfect solution for you. Or, if you love your career but want to be more viable for a promotion and want to get ahead, acquiring additional education in your field could do the trick. Although receiving more education is a great solution, you might be worrying about the cost. Does the cost outweigh the perks, and are there ways to recoup the cost?


Select the Perfect Continuing Education Courses


Continuing education does not automatically mean college. Pursuing a bachelor, master or other degree is not always the answer. Research a certificate program or a single course designed to improve employment skills. Completing a computer course increases your value to an existing or potential employer. If you select the program that will provide you with the most marketable skills to succeed in your career, you won\'t regret the cost down the road.


Seek Your Employer\'s Support for Adult Continuing Education


If you go back to school, you will offer more expertise and value to your company. This is why many employers help with the cost of adult continuing education. Some employers even offer courses onsite because they understand the value of continuing education for their employees. Before beginning any continuing education program, check with your employer\'s human resources office to find out what education is available through the company or if they reimburse you for certain classes-chances are they might.


Free and Low Cost Continuing Education Classes


Community colleges, high schools and community organizations often offer free or low cost adult education courses that generally focus on specific skills-anything from using a particular computer program to starting a small business. Hobby-related courses, such as woodworking or sewing, are also common, and skills learned from these classes can be turned into a side business to earn more money.


Check on Financial Aid for Adult Education


Financial aid can go far beyond loans. During a downturn in the economy, continuing education programs actually increase attendance. Because of this, schools bring in as many new students as possible, typically by offering scholarships, grants or tuition assistance programs designed to support adults who want to further their education or who have been laid off recently.


If All Else Fails, Earn Extra Money


If a degree program is really the only option and the available financial aid is not enough to pay for school, you should consider earning extra money to use exclusively for continuing your education. Your options include getting a part-time job at a local business, starting a home business or taking on freelance work. It may be difficult in the mean time, but expanding your education can mean a higher paying job in the future!
