A new program called Adult and Military Programs (AMP), started in July to help older students complete coursework and plan their careers.

VSU has about 1,400 adult learners between the age of 25 and 34.

The university says a sluggish economy has prompted more students to return to college.

"Having one place to go on campus to find out where to get help is the key thing," said Jerry Merwin, the director of VSU's Adult and Military Programs. "There might be 12 or 15 offices that could help an individual adult learner but we want to give them one door to walk through to get that help."

It's estimated that 22 percent, or one million Georgians, have earned college credits but not completed their degree.
