The number of working adults interested in pursuing a degree continues to make headlines. The reasons for this may vary: corporate reorganizations and layoffs on one hand, and a commitment to earning an income as part of a more meaningful and fulfilling career on another. Schools such as Point University are building unique programs to meet the changing needs of these nontraditional students. Point’s Hybrid Program is a hybrid platform that offers degrees through a combination of part-time, on-campus courses, as well as online classes for those with busy lives.

Better Hybrid to Higher Hybrid Distance Learning

What does being a “nontraditional student” mean? According to the National Center for Education Statistics2, one way to define the term is a degree-seeking student over the age of 24 who postponed college after graduating from high school for some reasons, including to take on the responsibilities of being a parent or starting into a longer-term job or career. The Association of American Colleges and Universities reported that, as of 2011, these adult learners “constitute a significant proportion of the undergraduate student body.”3

Through Point University’s Hybrid Program, adult students interested in pursuing a degree part-time can enroll in courses that are fully online or that are completed through a combination of online and classroom instruction. Depending on the specific degree, the student may be able to transfer up to 30 credit hours from a previous institution toward an Associate degree at Point, and up to 90 credit hours  into some of its bachelor’s level programs.
