Just Keep Learning!

It’s never too late to keep learning! Whether you are going for a degree as an adult or expanding your knowledge for fun, studies have shown the benefits of lifelong learning. 

62+ Program

Did you know that anyone age 62 or older can attend Georgia Southern University tuition-free? Why not experience a new degree at this time of life!

Adults 62 years or older who have been residents of Georgia for at least one year may attend college classes at no tuition cost on a space-available basis.

Personal Enrichment

Discover on your own terms. Lifelong Learning is fun and low-stakes.

Learning is not always academic or career-oriented. Georgia Southern University’s Division of Continuing and Professional Education strives to offer courses for any occasion in life. Whether you’re long retired, getting back into the workforce, or somewhere in between, this is your opportunity to uncover what makes you happy.
