Back to College® is a news and information
resource for adult re-entry students pursuing professional
development or an advanced degree.
Feature articles must address issues that are of importance
to the older student: obtaining financial aid, on campus and online
education, finding the right program, graduate school, or attaining
academic excellence (study skills and success strategies).
Career management and articles on successful transition
are appreciated. We are especially looking for stories
on the re-entry student experience. Articles may be
anecdotal, or include examples and resources where readers
can obtain more information (Web resources are
desirable for an online publication.) Make sure your article idea has not already been addressed on the Web
site. (See Feature article section for examples.)
Feature Articles: Payment is $85.00-$145.00 for original feature articles (will consider reprints and derivatives at reduced rates), approximately 1,000 - 1,500+ words
in length. Payment is determined according to content
depth, and is rendered by check 30 days from acceptance. We generally notify of acceptance within 30-90 days of submission. No phone calls please.
Please note: Articles will not be accepted for payment
if they may be considered promotional in nature or provide
testimonials for a Web site, book, product, or service.

through our online submissions form (below) for acceptance.
