Indiana Career and Postsecondary Advancement Center, Bloomington.
This bulletin is a guide for adults who are considering pursuing higher education. It lists some common reasons adults pursue additional education. College options are then explored. This section discusses the degrees and/or certificates offered, benefits, and program offerings of community, junior, and technical colleges; liberal arts colleges; universities; and programs especially for adults. A list of criteria is provided that the adult can use to rate colleges he or she is considering. Suggestions are made for enrolling in college, such as contact college admissions and continuing education offices; take any entrance or placement tests; order transcripts; and create a file of information about educational activities that the adult has completed. Sources for financial aid are then discussed. Finally, the bulletin lists some steps the adult can take to prepare himself or herself before he or she enrolls. (YLB)
