Adult students want ownership over their learning process. They want to engage with faculty on their own terms and in their own time. RMUís adult model utilizes an innovative method of blending classroom time with technology, allowing for consistent interaction between student and faculty.

The adult schedule at RMUís College of Adult Studies is designed for students who work full-time and seek to fit college into their schedules. Students maintain full-time status while attending class only two nights a week.
