  • Sixty percent of today’s undergraduate college students are post-traditional learners. Whether over the age of 25, working full-time with family responsibilities, financially independent, or connected to the military, they are a diverse group with a range of educational needs. ACE has a long history of supporting both post-traditional learners and the higher education institutions that serve them.
