Transfer Student or Adult Learner?
What’s the difference? A transfer student is someone who’s switching from one college to another without much of a break. An adult learner has done some coursework but hasn’t been in college for a while.
Colleges consider you an adult learner if you’re over 25 years old and living independently of your parents. Adult learners tend to juggle many responsibilities such as raising families or caring for aging parents. They may work part-time or full-time while going to school. Some have served in, or are currently serving in, the military. They may have taken classes from one or more colleges.
