Austin Peay State University has long enjoyed the advantages of having a large adult population on our campus and in our classrooms. The terms Adult Learner and Nontraditional Student have specific applications in higher education but they can be confusing, because after all, aren't we all adults? Aren't we all different and college is the place to be unconventional! So, what is a nontraditional student? 

Regular semester hours: 

Monday - Thursday 8:00am to 6:00pm; Friday till 4:30pm

The Adult and Nontraditonal Student Center has a computer lab, coffee, tea, refrigerator, and large screen television for relaxing and eating lunch in a congenial environment. Staff are on hand to answer questions and help facilitate the college experience for Adult and Nontraditional Students.
