Adult Learners & Continuing Education
Adults are a growing majority in U.S. higher education, meaning that you - an adult learner - are becoming the new traditional learner in a growing movement. At Virginia Western, we understand your need to balance important responsibilities with education and career goals. We aren't just an excellent choice for recent high school graduates, we also welcome more experienced adults as well; whether you are returning to college after a long break, or thinking about college for the first-time, it's all good.
"More than 62% of our student body is older than 20 years. No matter what your age, you will find peers at Virginia Western who are on the same journey for self-improvement."
-Dr. Robert H. Sandel, President, VWCC
