We believe there is nobility in choosing to complete your education, particularly when you’re managing the pressures and constraints of adult life. As an upper-division institution, Athens State University celebrates the resolve of the adult learner. After all, it takes courage, and then some, to balance the pursuit of a degree with work and family life.

That’s why we offer the Adult Degree Program, designed to assist working adults with finishing their degrees by applying their experience and knowledge as college credit.

You’ve worked hard, and we recognize that some of your knowledge and experience may be at the college level. The Adult Degree Program (ADP) at Athens State University is designed to offer college credit for the college-level knowledge adults have learned outside the classroom.
