For First-Year Experience, College Orientation, Student Success, and Student Development courses.

The College Experience for Adult Learners treats adult learners as equal partners in their success by providing them the 'unwritten rules' for how to succeed in college.

The text focuses on ways adults can manage the process of moving through their college education while maintaining other life responsibilities. It addresses academic and life planning, identifying and using support services inside and outside academic institutions, and communicating with faculty, family, and friends in ways that garner support for their academic goals.

Information is included about Prior Learning Assessment, which can help adult students get college credit for experiential learning. The realities of adult and college life are acknowledged through examples of adult learners who have successfully navigated the requirements of earning a college degree.
