Welcome to West Chester University and the Office of New Student Programs! We want you to be successful as a student, therefore, we offer an orientation program designed to help adult learners prepare for their academic career at WCU.
An adult learner is someone 24 or older who is attending college for the first time or returning after an extended absence. Unlike traditional students, adult learners often work full or part-time, are married or partnered, and care for children or elderly parents. Adult learners should take advantage of the many student support services that are available for them at WCU.
