Special Opportunities to Help Adult Students Adjust to College Life
An Adult Ed Orientation is scheduled each semester to give you the opportunity to learn about the various resources available to you as an Anderson University student (i.e., career and employment, counseling services, Kissinger Learning Center, etc.) It is also a wonderful opportunity to meet other adult students and share the excitement of returning to school.
Introduction to College (LART 1100) is a required course that students 25 and older must take if they transfer in less than 24 credit hours. This course is an excellent starter course. It helps you to adjust to the challenges of college and allows you the opportunity to develop essential skills like how to study, how to understand your textbook, how to deal with test anxiety, how to take good notes, time management, and critical thinking skills. This two-credit-hour class should be taken during your first semester. You will be challenged but also encouraged and supported by other new adult education students who have similar needs and responsibilities.
Career and Life Planning (LART 1200) is a great class to take if you wish to assess your interests, skills, personality and values. Research the job market and occupations that relate to your career path. Learn decision making and program solving skills used in making career and life planning decisions.

Most of the students selected have a GPA of 3.9 or higher.
