Are you thinking about going to college again?  Do you have a son or daughter that will be attending college soon?  If you have a chronic illness, successfully obtaining that college diploma can be a little more difficult.  The following is a 12 step success guide to higher education regardless of health condition.  They are suggestions written by someone who has spent a lot of time in higher education who happens to have a chronic illness.

Over the next few weeks, I will go over each one of these steps in more detail.  They are written in no particular order:

  1. Talk to your Care Team
  2. Finding the Perfect College/University
  3. Look for Scholarships
  4. Online vs. Traditional Universities
  5. Work-life Balance
  6. Part-Time vs. Full-Time
  7. Talk to the Disability Office
  8. Talk to your Professors
  9. Find Support
  10. Stress Management
  11. Don’t Lose Sight of your Dream!
  12. Taking a Semester off
