Adult Students

Penn State Abington’s enrollment includes 20% adult students.

What is Penn State's definition of an adult?

Penn State’s definition of an adult learner is a person who:

  • is 24 years of age or older; or
  • is a veteran of the armed services; or an active duty service member; or
  • is returning to school after four or more years of employment, homemaking, or other activity; or 
  • assumes multiple adult roles such as parent, spouse/partner, and employee.

These students do not have to submit any SAT scores for admission. Ashley Anthony is the counselor who assists Adults and Transfer Students.
