Say, for example, you need to take courses to upskill, or to fulfill continuing education requirements. You may wonder, where am I going to find time to do that?

Are you an adult learner thinking of going back to school? Are you considering taking courses for personal or professional development? Does your profession require Continuing Education credit hours?

More than 40 percent of Americans enrolled in colleges are adult learners – students who are 25 years old or older - and many colleges and universities are just starting to consider their diverse needs. This growing demographic tends to be ambitious, capable, and eager to learn.
