Summary

This study is concerned with the following topics on adult student attendance at Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC) during the 1969-70 academic year: student background, reason for attendance, enrollment in programs or courses, academic success, evidence of personal and occupational development. The report is based on the useable questionnaire responses from 998 credit and non-credit adult students, as well as their college records. The students' evaluation of HACC grew from their expectations, motivations, and experiences at the college. It was found that two premises for continuing education for adults are: (1) the need for renewing one's employment skills and abilities several times throughout life; and (2) the need to continually develop one's awareness of environment in terms of society, culture, and natural and technological phenomena. Recommendations reducing barriers for extending adult education are: off-campus centers, non-credit courses, financial aids, flexible admissions procedures, public information, and course scheduling.
