American Going Back to College as an Adult

Adults returning to earn their degree should look for colleges with flexible programs and on-campus support services.

Completing a college degree is not an easy feat. It is especially challenging for adult learners 

who often juggle family and work responsibilities on top of taking classes. 

While there's a "whole social apparatus" set up for students attending college straight out of high school 

including college counselors and targeted recruitment programs – adult learners are more on their own, 

Even so, more schools are starting to offer tailored support specifically for adult learners. 

"Finishing your credentials can be a family-changing decision," Taylor adds. 

But "it's more of a complex decision for an adult than someone who is 18." 

These studies found that smaller classes correlate with better test scores.
