College is already difficult on it's own, but most people have several other responsibilities to balance while in school. Your ability to handle an internship while enrolled full time will depend on your time management skills. If you can schedule your time responsibly between school and work, you should have no trouble keeping up with school while interning.


It's important not to over schedule yourself, but you could easily make time for all your responsibilities. Use a weekly calendar or agenda and schedule school time, study and homework time, work time, personal time, family time, and anything else you want to have time for. Make sure you know how much time you'll need to be successful in your classes, and don't allow yourself to get overworked at your internship. Ask to be scheduled for a specific amount of time, and be realistic about the time you'll spend with your other responsibilities.


If you're taking a particularly difficult course load in a certain semester, maybe cut back on hours spent at the internship or with friends. It can be a stressful juggling act, but if you are honest with yourself about your habits, and can stick to plans when you make them, you should have no trouble handling both school and an internship at the same time.

Having an internship while also being a full time student may seem a little scary at first. However, it is very attainable. Most companies are very understanding when it comes to a full time student having an internship. Just be sure to communicate with your manager and always be honest with them if you think that you have too much on your plate. School should always come first. I recommend creating a daily schedule and sharing it with your manager so that they know when you have your busiest days and may need a few extra hours to study or do homework.

There are many things one can do to have the ability to attend a college while working. The first part is to sit down and look at your daily activities and make sound decisions about how you spend your time. Make the time to study, do not procrastinate, break down large projects into small parts and most of all reward yourself at the end of every week. Put in the effort and you will be rewarded for your time. Take education seriously and it will pay off massively in the long run. Stick to your schedule and work hard for your future. Lastly, find a friend, schoolmate, or a mentor that will assist you on your journey.
