Penn State York will host an open house for adult learners on Tuesday, July 27 from 4 – 7 p.m. The event, in the M. S. Grumbacher Information Sciences and Technology Center on the lower part of the campus, is free and open to the public. Information will be presented on the admissions process, advising and career services, financial aid, the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) and educational options for adult learners. Workshops will focus on supporting veterans, credit and noncredit certificates, as well as other information for adult learners.

Penn State York provides a variety of services and activities to help adult students be successful in their college experience. Students can select from more than 200 noncredit, certificate, and degree programs. Adult learners may start taking courses one at a time, credit or noncredit, and may not go through the admissions process until later in their educational experience. A variety of scheduling options are available, including enrolling part-time or full-time, participating in day and/or evening classes; completing a program at your workplace; or studying at home through online courses.

An adult learner is someone who is 24 years of age or older; a veteran of the armed services; or returning to school after four or more years of employment, homemaking, or other activity; or a person who assumes multiple adult roles such as parent, spouse/partner, employee, and student.
