Franklin University students are diverse in many respects, including work and life experience. Working adults can find a traditional full-time academic schedule to be restrictive, and therefore their needs are different from those of a traditional student.
Because many of the students at Franklin work full time, the institution demonstrates its ability to respond and adapt to real-world needs by making the attainment of bachelor’s and master’s degrees possible for anyone so motivated.
Franklin promotes student success through a variety of formats, academic resources, and student support services – all designed around the needs of the busy, working adult. Keeping the needs of students at the forefront of Franklin’s operations is reflected in the following strategic objectives:
- Make educational opportunities widely accessible through flexible delivery systems and schedules
- Provide educational programs that will increase students’ employment or promotion potential
- Offer undergraduate and graduate degree programs, general education, services, and activities to enhance the academic and personal development of students
Therefore, the University is committed to providing what the students need, when they need it. This includes receiving timely responses for admission decisions, transfer credit evaluations, and financial aid eligibility notices, as well as providing multiple options for where and how courses are delivered – in both face-to-face and online formats.
