Mellissa, Carl and Tiffany all returned to college as adults for different reasons—but with the same goal, to advance in their careers.

Mellissa, a working mother, needed to arrange her studies around her family’s schedules. Carl didn’t want to waste his hard work at Specs Howard School of Media Arts. And Tiffany needed a degree to move up in the field she already worked in.

They found all that and more with Rochester University’s Accelerated Learning programs, which gives adult students with jobs, families, and community commitments both online and in-person learning options, flexible semester start dates—and the academic support to pursue their dreams.
