Questions About Completing a Degree as an Adult

Are you an adult student looking to complete your degree? Find answers to frequently asked questions below. For additional questions, please contact an enrollment counselor.

I haven't been to school in 20 years. Can I really do this?

Our adult students range in age from 24 to 80. None completed their degree straight out of high school. Like you, they all have a wealth of life experience to share with other students. Most are busy adults juggling work, family, and school. Our classes are designed for your success. For example, many courses are offered one night a week for five weeks enabling you to progress through your program at a quick pace, one class at a time. We are here to help you accomplish your goals.
