Abstract

This qualitative case study explored the experiences of adult learners in an undergraduate accelerated degree program. Key beliefs of the experience focused upon four themes: 1) the adult degree program as a supportive world, 2) fellow students as a family, 3) successful adult students are dedicated, and 4) the paradoxical involvement in learning in an accelerated program.
