Park University Ranked Among Best in the Country for Adult Learners by Washington Monthly
With more than 20.2 million students age 25 and older attending colleges and universities in the United States — more than 40 percent of all higher education students nationwide — Washington Monthly has ranked, for the first time, a list of the top schools in the country for adult learners. Park University, which serves more than 17,700 students worldwide at 40 campuses in the U.S. and online, has been ranked No. 3 by the magazine on its “Best 4-Year Colleges for Adult Learners” list.
Park ranked behind only Golden Gate University in California and the University of Utah. Among private colleges across the country, Park ranked No. 2 (behind GGU). Park, which has been offering degree programs targeted to adult learners since the 1970s, currently has 78 percent of its students in the adult learner category (age 25 and older). The average age of all Park University students is 32.
The following metrics were used to construct the rankings: ease of transfer/enrollment, flexibility of programs, services available for adult learners, percentage of adult students, mean earnings of adult students 10 years after entering college, loan repayment rates of adult students five years after entering repayment and tuition/fees.
Serving non-traditional adult learners and an ethnically diverse student population is central to Park’s educational mission. The University also continues to increase access to higher education by offering the quality undergraduate and graduate degrees students desire at locations, times and delivery formats that best serve their needs. Among Park’s 40 campuses nationwide, 33 are located on military installations. Classes across the country begin five times a year and are offered face-to-face and online, as well as a combination of the two, in traditional 16-week semesters or accelerated eight-week terms.
