Support for Adult Learners


At the College of Continuing Education, we recognize that adult learners bring a wealth of experiences and perspectives into the classroom, and are well-poised for academic success. We know that you, as an adult learner, are highly motivated to learn, grow and continue your education – and we are thrilled to be part of your journey.  We also know that this journey can be stressful, and that you are juggling many responsibilities and competing demands while you pursue your education.  

We are here for you.

At CCE, we are committed to supporting the needs of adult learners through diverse program options, modalities that work around your schedule, academic advising, financial aid counseling, and unparalleled customer service. Whether you are interesting in upskilling, professional development, or pursuing a degree or credential, we are ready to help you find the program that meets your needs and fits within your life. We recognize that navigating higher education can sometimes be difficult or confusing – but we are here to help you through the process from start to finish.

Reach out if you need help.

Pursing your educational goals can sometimes mean adding yet another thing on your already full plate. Our message and commitment to you is that it is possible to achieve your educational goals! We are here to help you along the way when times get tough. The instructors, student support staff, and everyone at Sacramento State wants to see you succeed – so do not hesitate to reach out if you need help.


Along the way, don’t forget to celebrate any and all milestones!  From celebrating the completion of your first paper, wrapping up your first class, or making it to the halfway point of your program, remember to pause and recognize how far you’ve come.  Give yourself permission to be proud of your hard work.  We’d love to celebrate you too, so reach out with any celebratory stories you want to share!
