Westminster's Lifelong Learning Program (LLP) offers adult education, degree, and teacher certification programs—specially tailored to the needs of adult students. We also work with advanced high school students wishing to earn college credit in our high school - college dual enrollment program.
Westminster College values its high school and adult students—who balance work, family responsibilities, and other personal obligations along with their educational pursuits. To accommodate busy adults, many classes are available in blended (classroom and online) and accelerated formats, and in evening and summer sessions.
The Adult and Graduate Studies Department at Westminster would love to help you reach your educational goals, whether to complete your degree or learn a new skill. Contact us today.
