The Adult Re-Entry Program was formed to make the transition into college life a little easier for the nontraditional student, or adult learner. The purpose of the program is to provide guidance and support as the nontraditional student navigates the many challenges of college life. The Adult Re-Entry program is a valuable resource and enables students the opportunity to connect with campus and community resources. We also bring students together to provide peer support for a positive academic experience.
Statistics from the Census Bureau and the U.S. Department of Education show that nontraditional students are the fastest growing educational demographic. Although there is not a precise definition, the nontraditional student or adult learner is commonly considered a student who may have one or more of the following characteristics: 25 years of age or older, financially independent, delayed or interrupted college enrollment, has dependents, family and work obligations, including transfer, veteran, and international students.
Your education is an investment in yourself and you can take an enormous amount of pride in what you are about to accomplish. Your decision to seize the opportunity to gain knowledge displays motivation and dedication. We are excited to provide information on campus and community resources, guidance and support, referrals, and student advocacy. We deeply value your perspective to our academic community and welcome you to our campus!
