Information for the Adult Learner

What is an adult learner?

Usually when we talk about an adult learner we are referencing those who perhaps didn't attend college right out of high school, perhaps someone for one reason or another decided college wasn't for them at that time, or perhaps you attended college but didn't complete a degree, or better yet you have a degree or a job and you've come to the point in your life where you want or need a job.

At Barton we understand life circumstances take each of us on a different journey.  That's why we have numerous classes, programs, career training, course delivery options, and most of all we have the staff who understands your needs and challenges.

Rest assured, Adult Learners are common at Barton.  After all, 45% of our students are over the age of 25.  If you factor in the 20-24 year old range, you'll find that over 81% of our students are over the age of 20.

Spend some time on our website.  Find what drives you and/or give us a call.  We're here to help you in so many ways but it takes you to get it started.

Central Kansas Educational Opportunity Center
Are you an adult who has thought about returning to college or perhaps enrolling in college or vocational training for the first time? Are you at a loss about where to go or how to begin? The Central Kansas Educational Opportunity Center (CKEOC) has been developed to respond to the increasing educational need of adults. CKEOC staff can provide assistance in the areas of training and education choices, financial aid, admissions and career planning.
