The demographic and social imperatives for colleges to better serve adult students are evident. Colleges’ finances may depend on it. The economy requires more high-skilled workers of all ages. And a more-educated populace makes our democracy stronger.

But the steps for institutions to become more adult-friendly are not always obvious — or easy. “The Adult Student” report is a deep dive into the challenges older students face as they consider and enroll in college, including federal, state, and institutional policies and practices that stand in their way. The report — based on interviews with more than 120 college leaders, faculty members, policymakers, employers, and students — explores how some colleges are acting to remove the structural and cultural barriers that can hinder adults.

This guide is a companion to The Adult Student: The Population Colleges — and the Nation — Can’t Afford to Ignore report. Here you will find advice and resources for adopting some of the best practices for recruiting and serving adults. Whether your institution would like to enroll more adult students or is already steeped in that mission, the suggestions here will help kick-start or advance your efforts.
