The 2021 edition of “Adults Returning to School” is now available from the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).

“It’s never too late for Kentuckians to take the next step towards their dreams. This free booklet is a great resource for adults who want to further their education,” Gov. Andy Beshear said. “The information is useful whether they have not taken a course since high school or are returning to school to complete a degree or learn new skills to make them more competitive in the workplace.”

“Adults Returning to School” can guide adults through the admissions and financial aid processes. It is divided into three parts.

Part I deals with the decision to return to school. It provides information about adult education programs, admissions and transfers.

Part II guides adult students through the financial aid process. It includes sections about student aid and other government programs that can provide help to adult students and their families.

Part III provides detailed information about trade schools and two- and four-year colleges. The “Areas of Study” section lists schools that provide programs in some three dozen academic and technical fields.

Kentuckians can request a free copy by emailing publications@kheaa.com.

KHEAA is the state agency that administers the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES), need-based grants and other programs to help students pay their higher education expenses. Kentucky Lottery funds pay for many of those programs.

In addition, KHEAA disburses private Advantage Education Loans for its sister agency, the Kentucky Higher Education Student Loan Corporation (KHESLC). For more information about Advantage Education Loans, visit http://advantageeducationloan.com
