Setting Yourself Up for Success at HES

Seven Harvard Extension School graduates at commencement in their caps and gowns

You’re smart, driven, and love a challenge — but you’re still concerned about how to make going back to school as a working adult really work in your real life. At Harvard Extension School (HES) we know that going back to school as a working adult is a big commitment. Join a panel discussion with our staff, faculty, and alumni to get expert tips and hear from former students like you who found ways to balance it all.

During the Webinar, You Will: 

  • Hear work-life-academics balance tips and firsthand experiences
  • Explore student resources and support services at HES
  • Learn ways to create a community for yourself as a student 
  • Discover ways to prepare for your return to the classroom and reduce first-day anxiety
