Adult Learner Services

What is Adult Learner Services?

Adult Learner Services is a program specifically designed to help adults pursue a college degree. Thinking about entering college for the first time but don't know where to start? Considering going back to school to finish a degree you started years ago but didn't complete? Wondering how long and what classes you would have to take to finish? We can help with these and other questions.
