For courses in Student Success, First Year seminar, Study skills, and for any program or individual seeking strategies for adult learning success.

This chapter-sized segment provides success strategies specific to adult learners’ needs, including their life demands, family responsibilities, and professional obligations in addition to school. 

In a concise and focused one-chapter-sized segment, customizable within the Keys to Success series of textbooks as well as elsewhere, these materials validate and support the growing population of adult learners. With a discussion of the benefit of life experiences, it helps adult learners understand how what they already know can help them learn in an academic setting. With specific strategies that take into account the circumstances of non-traditionally-aged students, it helps the adult learner prepare effectively for college, work smart while there, manage academic responsibilities, and handle stress.
