Taking Online Courses as a Busy Adult

Working adults have unique needs. They are not 18-year-olds who have just been around longer.

You take care of your family, go to work every day and have many other responsibilities that you cannot put on hold in order to finish your degree. But you can be successful as an adult learner.

The key is finding an institution that serves you in ways that fit your life, not the other way around.

Contact the Office of Graduate Admissions to learn more about taking online courses as a busy adult.
