I plan on going back to school this fall, however I work 8-5 M-F.  I only plan on taking 3 classes and they'd all be online classes (Rio Salado, a branch of Maricopa Community Colleges).  I plan to get an Assoc. in Business and transfer to ASU to get a Bachelors in Accounting (or similar field).  The advisor I spoke with today gave a goal of 3 yrs for the Associates in Business and 5 yrs for the Bachelors.  Does anyone have any advice?  I'm guessing a strict organizational plan to juggle it all would be a good start... 

*This is my first post on here, is there spell check anywhere?*  

Thanks!

Welcome and congrats on starting back at school!  I take online classes, and I would suggest you follow the schedule and try not to far behind.  It's very easy to do, and very hard to catch up.  My teachers don't give me a timeline on when things are due, so I have to make my own schedule.  I turn in two assignments per week per class, and it's working out OK as long as I stick to that goal.
