Adult Learners

The complexity of adult lives means they have needs that differ from those of traditional-age students. Adult college students face the challenges of balancing school with work, parenting and other responsibilities. As the proportion of adult students grow on college campuses more services for adult learners are being cultivated to support them in degree completion.   

Every semester events are held specifically for adult learners to help with their academic and social transition to the university. To find events, download the Mason360 app or go to the website and use the “Adult Learners (25+)” tag to find events just for you.

You can also make an appointment to talk Matt, Coordinator for Off-Campus Students, or Caroline, Coordinator for Contemporary Students. They provide resources and support for Adult Learners.
