Going to college is a big commitment. You may ask yourself, “Is a college degree worth it? Can I afford it? Do I have the time to go to classes and be away from my family?” Those are all valid questions. It requires time – time away from your family and job, time to study, and time to go to classes. It can also cost a significant amount of money. You have to pay for tuition (which can be extremely expensive depending on the college or university), class fees, books, and parking.
