Introduction

Franklin Commons provides an opportunity for students in the Phoenixville and surrounding areas who do not have enough credits to enroll in Albright College’s Degree Completion Program (48 credits needed to begin), an opportunity to earn general studies and elective credits in an accelerated structure. Albright College has had a DSP presence in Chester county since 2004. Upon reaching the 48 credit plateau to enter Degree Completion, students can elect to continue their studies at our Pottstown, Blue Bell, or Media locations.

Motivation

As an adult student, I know firsthand how difficult it is to balance school and life. There is no greater sense of relief then when you know that you have finally completed your degree. I am motivated by feeling that sense of accomplishment; showing other adult students that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and that all the hard work and sacrifice is well worth it.

Advice for a Prospective Adult Student Looking to Return to School

My advice to prospective students is to never give up. It is easy to let any obstacle stand in the way of completing your degree. Time management will take you far. It will help you balance your school work and whatever life may throw your way. Utilize your resources, and do not be afraid to ask for help. Set your sights on the goal at hand and you'll be successful in the end.
