UW-Richland welcomes adult students. At UW-Richland, we've helped lots of adults achieve their goals and dreams. Whether you seek a new or enhanced career, want to take a course for intellectual enrichment or something in-between, you can do it and we can help.
You won't have to do it alone.
At UW-Richland, you'll have the support of an advisor dedicated to working with adult students, to career counseling, tutoring if you need it and an all-around supportive faculty and staff.
You'll also have the support of other adult students. In recent years up to 25% of UW-Richland students have been over the age of 21.
"Attending UW-Richland has taught me to expect more out of myself and encourage others around me to do the same. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I first began this journey and I can honestly say that although it has been difficult I am so thankful for the life lessons that I have learned along the way." – Linda Wanless, UW-Richland adult student
George Henze is UW-Richland's special advisor for returning adult students. He'll be happy to meet with you, help you make a plan to meet your goals, and assist you in achieving them. Do you have questions about balancing work and family with classes? Do you need information about becoming a student or support as you pursue your studies? George can help.
Academic and career counseling
Not sure of your goal? Your advisor, George Henze, is a career counselor. Make an appointment and talk to him. He can help you discover your best career fit and your options for preparation. Need advice in planning your course schedule, or coping with an especially challenging course? He can assist with that, too.
Adult student get-togethers offer you the opportunity to make connections. Adult students are welcome and encouraged to participate with traditional-age students in all campus clubs and organizations. George Henze can help you make those connections.

UW-Richland offers a child care reimbursement program--financial assistance to students with eligible child care expenses. To qualify, applicants need to be enrolled for at least six credits during fall or spring semesters and use a state licensed/certified child care provider. For details, contact George Henze.
