UA Adult Focus
Here to serve you
We are an academic support service for adult learners. An adult learner is any student who satisfies one of the following conditions:
- 25 years old or older
- Assumes multiple life roles such as a parent, spouse/partner, employee, caregiver and student
- Returns to school after four or more years of employment, homemaking, or other activity
- Veteran of the armed services
Any student, regardless of age, whose primary life roles and responsibilities exist independent of the University and take precedence over the role of student in times of crisis or stress is considered to be an adult student.
- Preadmission advising for new adult and veteran students

- Adult-oriented services and programs
- Focus on Success one-credit study skills class
