Your Support

Adult Learner Programs & Services is a tangible expression of Penn State's commitment to providing comprehensive services for non-traditional undergraduate students.

Whether you have been out of school for several years, or if this is your first college semester, we want you to feel comfortable utilizing the campus resources that complement your academic, personal and career goals.

We know this is a very exciting time and that it can also be a stressful time, too. Balancing life, work and school can be challenging, but it's worth it.

Remember that the Student Affairs and the Adult Learner Programs & Services office are your helpful resources during your educational journey.

Watch videos by adult learners like yourself on YouTube, attend one of our upcoming events, or boost your awareness of resources and opportunities available to adult learners. This site lists helpful web pages and can put you in touch with answers to your frequently asked questions.
