Adult-based bachelor and graduate programs are offered in a cohort model, where students usually meet once-a-week with approximately 15-20 other adults and take courses in blocks. The group spends several weeks per course. Coursework for most programs can be completed within 13 to 24 months, depending on the program.

Jeanette Hanson, executive director of adult recruitment, encourages adults who are interested in a program to contact the University as soon as possible to talk with a program representative, learn about financial aid options and visit with faculty teaching in the program.

“Friends University has a long history of experience with the needs of adult students,” Hanson said.  “We understand their need for personal enrichment, their desire to be role models for their families and their concerns about re-entering the classroom. Our adult students also appreciate the fact that our programs are convenient and manageable while maintaining their busy lives.”
