At Wayne State University, our students come from all walks of life, and we're proud to support them no matter where they are in their educational journey. We know that many of our students over the age of 25 are balancing career, family and school, and many of our classes are offered at different times and in a variety of formats including in person, online and hybrid to accommodate your unique needs. We offer a number of tools designed with your success in mind, and our Adult Learner Success Team can connect you to the resources that will help you thrive at Wayne State. If you've previously taken classes at Wayne State or at another college or university, contact our Transfer Student Success Team to learn more about the resources available to help you transfer over your credits and save time and money toward graduation!
