Offering Valuable Resources and Guidance to Achieve Your Educational Goals

FARMINGDALE, N.Y.: Adult learners seeking to further their education or expand their workplace skills are invited to attend the SUNY Adult Learner College Fair on Wednesday, May 31, 2023, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at the Farmingdale State College Campus Center. The fair, specifically created for adult learners, will feature SUNY’s downstate colleges and the Long Island Educational Opportunity Center.

According to recent statistics, nearly half of those enrolled in undergraduate higher education today are adult learners. The SUNY Adult Learner College Fair aims to assist this growing population by providing information, advice, and assistance on various topics, including financial aid, admissions, transfer credits, online learning, veterans’ services, programs for adults who are not “college-ready,” prior learning, microcredentials, and small business development.

The fair will not only offer information about degree programs but also certificate programs and microcredentials that can be stacked towards a degree. Long Island EOC will also be present to assist those who need additional preparation to begin achieving their academic goals.

“I am so proud of the continued evolvement of the Adult Learner Fair. I meet with so many adults who wish to pursue a degree or complete one and don’t know where to begin. This college fair is just for them,” said Judi Cestaro, director of transfer services, who leads the adult learner initiative at Farmingdale State College.
