B.A. Program for Adults
Men and women who want to earn a Sarah Lawrence degree through the Center for Continuing Education begin by registering for one of the Center's classes described on the following pages. The Center's four course offerings range across the academic disciplines and change each semester. All classes are seminars with no more than 12 students, held at 45 Wrexham, a renovated mansion on the Sarah Lawrence campus. Seminar students, like all students at the College, augment their class time with individual bi-weekly conferences with teachers.
As Center students rediscover and sharpen their study skills, and find out how best to fit their schoolwork into the rest of their day, they begin forming the relationships with other adult students that will grow and stay with them throughout their time at Sarah Lawrence, and often beyond. They meet frequently with their advisors (called “dons” at Sarah Lawrence) and take advantage of the many social, cultural, academic and athletic opportunities the College offers including lectures, films, tutorial services, career counseling and the 48,000-square-foot Campbell Sports Center.
Matriculation in the College
Customarily, adult students successfully complete about four courses at the Center and confer with their don before becoming part of the regular undergraduate student body and finishing their degree work on the main campus.
