New center to benefit adult students

Adult students can benefit from the resources available in the new Center for Adult Learners at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus.

The Center for Adult Learners was recently established to provide a range of services for adults considering first-time college enrollment or for adults returning to the college classroom after being away for a period of time.

The center provides a number of support programs and services for nontraditional and adult learners, including the IU1 Adult Learner Program, a CLEP testing center, Student Veterans of America Chapter, a study area, and lounge. Admissions and student aid counselors also are nearby.

“We’re seeing a great turnout of students for the new adult center. It’s a place for students to come to relax and socialize, or it can be used as a resource center,” said Apryl Kadish, admissions counselor.

A nontraditional or adult student is an individual who is age 24 or older; a veteran of the Armed Services or an active duty service member; an individual who is returning to school after four or more years of absence; or an individual who assumes multiple roles such as a parent, employee and student.

The Center for Adult Learners, located in room 108 of the Eberly Building, is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and evenings by appointment.
