Adult Learner Programs


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Degrees

The Adult Learner program at Lenoir-Rhyne University is designed to provide flexibility in meeting the needs of area adult and/or non-traditional students who because of other life responsibilities need to academically progress at a pace consistent with these obligations.

While all majors are available to Adult Learner students on the Hickory campus who are able to complete traditionally scheduled courses, three programs have been especially tailored for the adult student. These programs are the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA), the Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice, and the RN to BSN Gateway Nursing program. Adult students on the Hickory campus may enroll in up to 13 credit hours per semester and pay a discounted hourly tuition rate in lieu of receiving institutional financial aid.

Additionally, Lenoir-Rhyne University offers two undergraduate degree programs through the Asheville Center. These programs are the Bachelor of Science in Aviation Studies and the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA). The Bachelor of Science in Aviation Studies degree program is a direct articulation agreement between Lenoir-Rhyne University and Asheville-Buncombe Technical & Community College. Students must have completed the Associate of Applied Science at AB Tech in order to be eligible for the bachelor-level program at Lenoir-Rhyne. The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration is available to any eligible Adult Learner student in the Asheville area. Adult students on the Asheville campus may enroll in up to 12 credit hours per semester and pay a discounted hourly tuition rate in lieu of receiving institutional financial aid.

Adult Learner students who chose to enroll in more than 13 credit hours in any given semester will pay the standard semester tuition charges and may be eligible to receive institutional aid upon request.

Students who begin at Lenoir-Rhyne classified as traditional students and continue uninterrupted may not change their classification to Adult Learner. Adult Learner students are charged tuition at a discounted rate and are therefore not eligible for any additional institutional scholarships (except Sacred Music and/or athletic scholarships).
