Life as an Adult Student

Use Your Experience to Further Your Education

Deciding to go to college as an adult can seem overwhelming. There are so many things to consider — family, work, life, and now you just might add “school” to that list. The University System of Georgia campuses are working diligently to make going to or back to college easier for adults. With our newly developed Adult Learning Consortium, thirteen of our campuses are focused squarely on identifying ways to ease your transition back into college life — without sacrificing work and family responsibilities.

Are You Ready for Online Learning?

After you begin to explore your options, you will see that your choices include traditional classroom time as well as online learning. There is an assessment on the Georgia ONmyLINE site that you can take to help determine your readiness for distance/online learning.

Georgia ONmyLINE Offers Many Programs and Degrees to Fit the Busy Life of an Adult Learner.

Online courses provide students flexibility to attend courses when and where they choose using a computer with Internet access. Online courses cover the same high-quality material as traditional classrooms; however, information is exchanged using email, discussion boards, chat sessions, and submitting assignment and exams electronically. The Adult Learning Consortium provides a wide variety of programs and degrees offered online – check out the Georgia ONmyLINE website and get ready to take control of your career and your future!
