Adult Learners

  • Adult Learners
  • We are here to help you start or continue your education

    Your decision to continue your education may seem overwhelming. We recognize that your busy world often includes personal, family, social and professional obligations in addition to school.

    The Center for Adult Learning staff is here to help you apply for admission, file for financial aid and register for classes – all at one convenient location.

    We work with adult students interested in full-or part-time study, whether you are a first time student, returning to college or interested in taking a few classes to enhance your resume.

    Day Classes

    Those students who are able to pursue their education full-time must often attend Day classes. Also, those working second- or third-shift hours wishing to attend college part-time often elect Day classes to meet their needs. Day classes generally follow Monday/Wednesday/Friday or Tuesday/Thursday combinations.

    Evening Classes

    Evening classes generally follow Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday combinations, although some evening classes meet just once a week for three hours. A student working daytime hours could elect to attend classes one, two, or four nights a week, depending on personal preference and time constraints. A majority of programs do require students to attend during the day.

    Summer Sessions

    While summer class attendance is not required in most programs, students may elect to earn additional credits during this time of year. Courses are of varying lengths, with start dates staggered from early May through mid-July. Students may attend classes while still taking vacations and spending time with their families over the summer.
