Adult college students; Adult learning;
Older students often have different needs and experiences than their younger counterparts (Cross, 1981). This paper examines three areas concerning adult students. These include 1) adults' motivations in seeking post-secondary education, 2) the barriers experienced by adult learners, and 3) what assistance adult learners need to successfully complete their educational goals.
