“We are excited to provide this opportunity to help adults start college or return to college,” said Dr. Brad Kissell, director of adult and regional campuses enrollment. “Adults go to college for a number of reasons, including to advance or change careers, keep up-to-date in their profession, to finish a degree or to simply advance their own knowledge and skills.

“At Western Kentucky University, we understand the needs and commitments of adult learners,” Dr. Kissell said. “Whether the goal is to complete an associate degree, finish a bachelor’s degree, pursue a graduate degree, or simply earn one of WKU’s many certificates, attending one of the free information sessions is a great way learn how WKU helps adult learners finish their degrees.”

A brief presentation will take place along with a question-and-answer session. WKU representatives will be present from key academic departments such as Adult Learner Services, Distance Learning, Military Student Services, Student Financial Assistance, The Graduate School, and The Transfer Center. At each information session, attendees can register for a drawing to win a $500 WKU scholarship.

“WKU is committed to helping adults achieve their academic and professional goals,” WKU President Gary Ransdell said. “We understand that ‘life’ can get in the way and it’s challenging to juggle the many responsibilities that adults face. However, I want every adult learner to know that WKU is here to partner with them on their academic journey and help them finish their degree.”
