Luddens' Adult Guide to Colleges and Universities.
Ludden, LaVerne L; Ludden, Marsha
This guide provides information on nearly 500 adult-oriented colleges and universities, and includes descriptions of nontraditional programs such as guided study, distance learning, correspondence, and televised programs. Two introductory chapters provide information on going back to school and selecting a college. Chapter 1 discusses issues such as doubt about returning to school; how long it will take and how much it will cost; balancing family, work, and school; and explains both traditional and nontraditional programs. Chapter 2 focuses on identifying, evaluating, and selecting a college, and includes a checklist for comparing colleges. The directory is listed in alphabetical order with each entry including data on nontraditional degree programs offered, extended classroom sites, admissions requirements, fees, tuition and costs, financial aid, prior-learning credits, and special services for adult students. Appended are a list of colleges by state, a list of colleges with external and distance learning programs, and a list of universities offering doctoral programs representing a total of more than 2,500 institutions of higher learning.
