Are you an adult with some college education, but no degree?

If so, you are not alone. In 2015, there were between 30 million and 35 million Americans who fell into this category. In the greater Seattle metropolitan area, there are over 750,000 people in this situation.

But whatever reasons have motivated your return to school, it’s important to get off on the right foot. What kinds of things can you do to ensure that you reach your educational, career and personal goals?
