Adult and Continuing Education

Pace University's commitment to its motto Opportunitas is exemplified by its mission, which is to
provide working men and women the opportunity to realize their dreams of success. That
distinguished tradition is evident today, as more than one half of Pace's 14,000 students are
adults. The Office of Undergraduate Admission and the Office of Adult and Continuing Education
are staffed with full-time advisers who work only with students who seek ways to enhance or complete their education at Pace University.

The advisers will assist students with the following:
* Admission and registration processes
* Academic advisement including:
* Tentative evaluation of transfer credits for educational planning
* Review of degree programs best suited to meet the needs of the student
* Referral to appropriate resources for counseling and career services
* Assessment of prior learning for college credit
* Administration of special degree programs designed for adult students who have accumulated a large number of transfer credits or are planning to use prior learning assessment to complete their degree
* Orientation to the academic world for mature men and women who are adding the roles of
student to their other roles
