Adult education information session set for April 18 at Schlow Library

Penn State will host a free information session for adults interested in continuing their education from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, April 18, at Schlow Centre Region Library in downtown State College at the corner of Allen Street and Beaver Avenue. Check in and refreshments will take place from 5 to 5:30 p.m.

“This is a casual, informative session where attendees can obtain answers to their education-related questions,” said Meg Abplanalp, admissions counselor in Admission Services for Continuing Education and World Campus.

Adults can talk with representatives from Penn State’s Continuing Education, World Campus and Student Affairs units about their education goals — whether it is to complete a degree begun previously or to get more education for a career change or career advancement.

Participants can learn about Penn State’s wide range of education programs, including professional certificates and associate, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs; financial aid and scholarships; and the free Transitions: College and Career Prep program, which covers math, writing, reading comprehension, technology, note taking, research skills, time management and financial aid issues.

Penn State’s courses are offered during the evenings, on weekends and during the day, as well as online. In addition, participants can find out about registering for courses, transferring credits and earning credits for their prior college-level learning.

Adults who cannot attend the session may call the phone number listed below to make an appointment with a Penn State admissions counselor.
