Welcome to the Adult Reentry Center

Our Mission

The Adult Reentry Center at Cal State Fullerton is dedicated to the academic success of all adult learners. Our mission is to provide support services to prospective and current students who have multiple responsibilities outside the role of a student. We serve as a resource in providing an engaging environment for adult learners to thrive and achieve within the university setting.

Profile of an Adult Reentry Student

The profile of the adult reentry student is constantly evolving and the number of reentry students at our university is rapidly growing. Typical characteristics of an adult reentry student can be one or all of the following; they are a parent, twenty five years of age or older, a veteran, have delayed enrollment or taken a break from higher education, and employed full or part time. Returning to school after a break from college is an important decision for the adult learner. Many feel overwhelmed and unsure of how they will balance the multiple responsibilities.  Adult learners may experience feelings of isolation and concern about academic skills and performance. The WoMen’s and Adult Reentry Center is aware of the unique needs of reentry students and offers support and services to foster and enhance students’ growth and success.
