Prospective Students Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

Q: I've been out of school 15 years. Will I feel out of place taking classes after all that time?
A: Most of our students are in their mid-thirties. You will find most of our students share the same concerns about not having taken classes in quite some time, and how to juggle graduate school with an already busy life. Penn State Great Valley was designed for your needs, and we are ready to accommodate your busy schedule.

Q: What about busy travel schedules?
A: Because our courses are offered in 7-week sessions, students find it easier to plan their business schedules. Some of our courses are offered blended online and classroom instruction, which offers some flexibility. Unlike cohort programs which require continuous enrollment, at Penn State Great Valley you can take a session off during busy travel seasons or peak workload periods.
