Adult Learners

Information for Adult Learners

Adult Learners are generally students who are 25 or older; however, parents, former foster children, veterans, independent students and married individuals under the age of 25 may be considered adult learners.

At Walters State, we understand the challenges our adult students face – family, work, and other responsibilities. That’s why we offer the flexibility and the tools that adult students need to succeed in college. Our goal is to create a learning environment that works for you.

And if you’re an adult student who doesn’t already have a college degree, you can attend Walters State tuition free through the Tennessee Reconnect Program. You may also be eligible for other financial assistance.

Contact us and we will help get you started on earning your college degree. But more importantly, we will support you along the way to help you achieve your educational and career goals.
