Q: Is it OK to take just a few courses?
Yes. You can work towards completing a degree by attending Penn State as a full-time (12 or more credits) student or part-time (6 to 11 credits) student. In addition, you can also enroll in two classes at a time.
Q: Can I complete a degree by taking only night classes?
Penn State Beaver does not guarantee that all courses are available in the evening, but during each semester, a variety of classes are offered at night.
Q: Will I have the opportunity to meet other adult learners?
Yes! In order to introduce adult learners to each other as well as faculty members, the Adult Learners Committee hosts coffee houses and information sessions throughout the year
