Special seminars address questions from adults considering college

8/26/2009 —
Adults considering college can get up to speed with a new series of special seminars being presented at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus. The adult seminars are mini sessions designed to provide valuable information that may aid adults in making their educational decisions.

Apryl Kadish, adult admissions counselor at Penn State Fayette, says a lot of factors come into play when an adult decides to go to college for the first time or return to college to finish a degree. “Questions arise, such as: How can they complete their degree quickly, what learning options are available to them, and what careers are available that will lead to employment opportunities? The seminars will answer these kinds of questions.”

The adult seminars at Penn State Fayette are free, open to the public, and scheduled on the first Tuesday of each month this fall, beginning September 1. The sessions will be held from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the Corporate Training Center, in the Eberly Building. Adults can attend any or all of the sessions.

The adult seminars include:
  • September 1—“College Credits for Prior Learning Experiences” explains how adults can turn prior college-level learning experiences, such as credits earned at another university, education in the workplace, self-taught study, or military experience, into college credits they can use to pursue a degree program.
  • October 6—“Blended Learning at Penn State” explores educational classroom options. Adults will learn about blended classes, hybrid courses and online classes, and how these classroom options compare to traditional classroom learning.
  • November 3—“Occupational/Career Outlook” looks at employment opportunities in Fayette County and how this information affects what majors adults should consider when selecting a program of study.
