Adult learners can fall into a number of categories, but they oftentimes have similar needs and share common obstacles when it comes to their academic goals. These students may have started their degree under previous curriculum requirements, may require additional support services, or may need different methods of course delivery. If you are an adult learner or a former student interested in degree completion, the Center for Students in Transition (SiT) may be able to assist you.

Adult Learners

The Center for Students in Transition works closely with departmental advisors and with the Division of Continuing Education and Professional Studies to help returning adult students identify and understand their remaining degree requirements. If you attended CU in the past and are unsure of which curriculum requirements apply to you, or if you need help determining which of your remaining requirements can be taken online or through an outside institution, please contact the Center for Students in Transition at sitadvising@colorado.edu.

CU Complete

CU Complete is a grant-funded initiative developed by the Division of Continuing Education and Professional Studies with support from the Colorado Department of Higher Education (CDHE) to help former students complete their degrees. The Center for Students in Transition works closely with Continuing Education to identify remaining course requirements as well as additional resources for these students.

If you are returning to CU to complete your degree, you may qualify for the CU Complete Scholarship. To qualify, you must have a minimum 2.0 GPA, must be taking CU credit courses, and must be working toward your first bachelor’s degree. Highest consideration is given to students who have completed at least 60 credit-hours and who are 25+ years of age or non-traditional in some way. You can find the scholarship application and more information at the CU Complete website.
