Number of adults returning to college
How many adults are returning to college?
More than half of working adults
Believe it or not, more than half of the working adults are planning to return to college. It is interesting to know that nearly nine-in-ten (89%) employed Americans believe there is still room to grow in their current careers. The global recession plays an important role in the adultsâ€™ decision of returning to college. It is important to know that nearly 60 percent of workers plan to take an online course. Needless to say, adults of 25 to 34 years are more likely than other age groups to return to college.
