Adult and Transfer Student Support

 

Edinboro University is committed to helping transfer and adult students achieve their goals of earning a college degree. The Office of Transfer Adult Student Services offers a number of ways to assist students and to ensure their continued success.

Priority Scheduling

Priority scheduling offers adult students an advantage in managing their already hectic schedules by allowing them to schedule their classes one day before traditional-aged students with the same class standing.

Flexible Learning

As a transfer or adult student, one of the most significant concerns is how to find the time to complete a degree. With locations in Edinboro and Erie as well as evening and online learning opportunities, it's easy to fit classes into your busy life. The option of taking one class at a time or several helps fit education into your personal schedule.

24-Hour Online Tutoring

In addition to the on-campus tutoring programs and writing center, EU students have access to free online tutoring 24 hours per day, seven days per week through a company called Smarthinking. Ninety percent of Smarthinking's tutors hold advanced degrees in their field and average more than nine years of teaching or tutoring experience.

Adult Learner Advisory Council

The Adult Learner Advisory Council is the representative body for Edinboro University's adult students and monitors the recruitment, success and satisfaction of adult learners.

Adult Honor Society

Alpha Sigma Lamda, an adult honor society at Edinboro University, is a national organization with more than 300 chapters across the country.

Child Care

Child care is offered through the YMCA of Greater Erie's Early Learning University (ELU) on the EU campus.

Commuter and 24-Hour Study Lounges

EU offers an array of study lounges in buildings across campus. Those that are particularly appealing to adult students include a lounge that is open 24 hours a day, seven days per week, and a commuter lounge that is equipped with computers, a TV, refrigerator, and lockers.

Veterans Success Center

We offer support for veterans through the Veterans Success Center, which provides aid for military veterans, current service members and their dependents.
