Center for the Adult Learner

We provide the coaching and support you need to finish your bachelor’s degree.

Whether you’ve been out of college for two years or two decades, we can help you earn your degree. We’ll work with you to create a manageable, affordable degree plan that:

  • Identifies college-level knowledge you already have—for credit
  • Transfers college credits you’ve earned from previous coursework
  • Fits with your professional goals
  • Pinpoints what you still need to learn

We’re specialists in working with adult learners. We offer academic advising and mentoring that builds your confidence and prepares you for success. Let us help you personalize your program, pace, and structure so that you get to the finish line.
