This practical volume addresses the concerns of the working professional seeking a graduate degree while trying to maintain career and family responsibilities. The information, advice and shortcuts provided are gleaned from 20 years of service in the divisions of continuing education of three major state universities in the United States. Beginning with an overview of the development of graduate school as a part-time phenomenon, the author goes on to explore practical matters such as choices of schools and programmes as well as strategies to cut through, or cope with, university bureaucracies and financing. Appendices provide information on regional accrediting associations, academic guidelines, entrance exam preparation and financial aid.
