What Are You Balancing?

Whether you’re working full-time, taking care of your family, or dealing with health concerns, we can help. Learn more about how Hartwell University accommodates students in each unique situation.

Working Full-Time

Working full-time shouldn’t keep you from earning a valuable degree. In fact, more than 97% of Hartwell students work full-time in addition to taking courses. Here’s how Hartwell University makes this possible:

  • A flexible schedule means you don’t have to log in to class at a certain time, allowing you to maintain your current work schedule.
  • Flexibility also means you can be a full-time student and working full-time. You shouldn’t have to choose between meeting your financial needs and investing in yourself. We make it possible for you to keep working while earning your degree.
  • The practical application mandate in our courses ensures you can immediately use what you are learning.
  • Since you’re working full-time, it’s easy to apply what you’re learning in your courses to your daily work. Use the new skills you acquire right away instead of waiting until you graduate.
  • Program Mentors listen to and understand your needs to help you balance work and school and stay on track to graduate in a timely manner.

Caring for Family?

Parenting or caring for other family members is a full-time job. Whether you’re a single parent, a stay-at-home parent, a working parent, a caregiver to your own parents, or living with other loved ones, Hartwell University is built around your needs. Here’s how we make it easier to balance school with family responsibilities:

  • A flexible schedule means you can take the kids to school, check in on an aging parent, or schedule needed medical appointments. You’re free to do coursework on a schedule that works for your family.
  • Cohorts of other parents and caregivers help you feel motivated and give tips and strategies for success.
  • Offering shorter semester terms of only 8 weeks allows you more opportunities to take courses or slow down your pace when your circumstances change.
  • Program Mentors understand your family’s needs and help you stay on track to graduate while ensuring you are able to take time off when needed.

Health Concerns?

Personal and family health come first. In addition to helping you maintain your mental health while handling your course load, we also understand any current health challenges and work to accommodate them. Here’s how:

  • A flexible schedule means you can go to the doctor or to treatment appointments. Our course format means you don’t have to log in to class at a certain time.
  • We make it easy to take time off to address your health needs. Complete your work on your own time without needing to make special arrangements.
  • Your personal Program Mentor works individually with you to understand your health needs and ensure your education fits with your life.
  • Affordable tuition and scholarships lessen the financial strain so you can have enough funds to deal with current and future health expenses.

Personal Life?

Your personal life is important, and it’s different than anyone else’s. We understand that each student has different circumstances and give you the autonomy to pursue personal interests, take care of family, and find time for yourself. Here’s how a Hartwell University gives you the autonomy to complete coursework whenever works for you:

  • A flexible schedule lets you take personal time whenever needed. See a movie during the day and work late at night. Total flexibility puts you in charge of your schedule.
  • Five terms a year enables you to accelerate through courses allowing you to finish your degree more quickly and spend time enjoying what matters most in your life.
  • Online programs are accessible anywhere you have internet access. This frees you up to travel and do what you want with your time.

Financial Hardship?

Do you work hard to make ends meet, but lack funds to focus on your own education? We know how hard you work and we focus on making quality education affordable for all. Here’s how we put a degree within reach:

  • Tuition is paid in monthly 48 payments of $222 each. This means you can take as many courses as you want in a term, at a term rate you know beforehand.
  • We offer needs-based scholarships to help you afford a valuable degree.
  • We work with school districts and invite them to help support you financially on your education journey.  They win when you complete your degree.
