Non-Traditional Students

As an adult student, you may have obligations that many “traditional” students do not have. This doesn’t mean you can’t study abroad, but you will need to plan ahead a little differently and consider non-traditional options. Penn State’s Commission for Adult Learners offers additional resources for non-traditional students, including those for adult learners and active military service members and veterans.

The mission of Global Engineering Engagement is to create an environment that embraces the values of international education, where access to global exposure and opportunities to develop cross-cultural competence is pervasive. We believe that it is within our reach to ensure that all engineering students can become internationally engaged.
