Graduate Students & Adult Learners

Welcome Graduate Students & Adult Learners

Graduate Students and Adult Learners are a vibrant part of the Seattle University community bringing to the campus important life experience that enhances the in and out of classroom experience for others.

Often, our graduate students and adult learners serve as a model for other students a strong commitment to their education, an ability to juggle a myriad of responsibilities, and a wisdom that comes from additional life experience. We understand that and offer a wide array of resources to make the return to school and navigating Seattle University a smooth experience. 

Seattle U uses the following markers to determine adult learners:

  • 25 years+ (some use 24+)

  • Married, have families, or are single parents

  • Working professionals (have not previously completed their degree)

  • Returning students (took a few years off of school)
