Adult Learners

Welcome to Spalding University’s Adult Accelerated Program (AAP). We are thrilled that you are considering furthering your education at the Kentucky university that has delivered a quality undergraduate education to adult learners longer than any other school in the state. At Spalding we are committed to helping you grow personally and professionally, intellectually and spiritually, while assisting you in achieving your goals in an environment that offers a high degree of personalized attention for each student.

Spalding’s AAP offers adults the opportunity to take classes that meet once a week for four hours in the evening or on Saturday in seven, six-week sessions year round. In other words,  professionals who work during the day are able to earn an undergraduate degree quickly and conveniently by starting school at any one of seven times throughout the year. Most of Spalding’s full-time faculty members, along with part-time faculty members assessed for their ability to interact with adult learners, teach in the program and help ensure that the standards and rigor of both our AAP and traditional day program classes are equally of high quality.
