Colleges Focused on Adults

As you are well aware, adults have different needs than younger college students. They have family responsibilities, jobs, mortgages and other obligations. 

That is why we have made it our goal to help every college and university become an Adult Learning Focused Institution (ALFI)—one that offers services to meet the unique needs of adult students.

The ALFI Coalition is an alliance of CAEL member colleges and universities that strive continuously to improve their programs and services for adult students. Coalition participants use CAEL's ALFI Assessment Tools to assess their programs regularly.

If you are an adult considering earning a college degree, we recommend you take note of ALFI schools. Click here to see a list of these colleges and universities.
