I worked part-time off campus all through college. It was tough but manageable because I planned everything out by creating a chart and writing out a schedule for both my classes and my part-time jobs. Since I mostly worked Monday thru Friday evenings and anytime Saturday and Sunday, that left me plenty of time to go to class and get school work done during the day. In addition, I had jobs that weren't too demanding so I was able to get some studying done while I was at work and I had enough time to go to parties after work to make sure I had a social life.


The point I'm trying to make is that the main thing you have to do is plan ahead and write everything out. After you register for classes each semester you'll know your availability to work and if something should change from one semester to the next, you'll have enough time to notify your supervisor.

I worked full time while going to school full time with 18 credit per semester. My biggest piece of advice is plan your time effectively. Use those 10 minutes between classes. Use your breaks at work for flash cards or to review a concept. Get a planner that works for you be it paper or digital and put everything in there. Work ahead where you can. If you can record lectures and play them back on your commute. Use all those minutes that are waster or underutilized and make them work for you.
