For Adult and Returning Students
Today, education is for everyone. The U.S. Department of Education estimates that 90 million individuals participate in some form of adult education each year, including training and basic education offered outside traditional higher education. To serve this immense market, most colleges have structured programs and services specifically for adult learners. Forty percent of American college students, or almost 6 million people, are 25 years of age or older.

Quest PREP


QUEST Prep is a self-paced program developed by Project QUEST and is led by a professional educator in a dedicated learning center. Group instruction is given in areas identified as deficient in most of the students in a given class. Participants proceed at their own pace in other areas of remediation. The goal is to lift the education level from as low as 6th grade in reading or math to a college level.
