Adults have work and family commitments to consider when planning to earn a Bachelor’s or an Associate’s degree. To support adult students throughout their educational journeys, the Center for Adult and Returning Students at UW-Parkside is a one-stop resource to help adults explore program options, navigate the application process, pursue earning credit for on-the-job training, and find support through to graduation.
Parkside offers multiple, fully online degree completion programs for those returning to school and now has an online Associate’s of Arts and Sciences degree for those starting school, in addition to multiple online Master’s degrees. Parkside also provides the opportunity for students to earn Credit for Prior Learning based on learning done on the job, in the military, through volunteer work, and as a result of independent study.
Watch Stacy Tinholt and Dr. Virginia Emery of the Center for Adult and Returning Students discuss UW-Parkside’s programs tailored to the needs of working adults.
