Commuter Information

If you've decided to commute to campus, you'll find that our course selection is large enough so you can schedule courses to meet your busy schedule. And, our parking is plentiful so you won't spend extra time trying to find a space.

We also have many cozy and comfortable areas on campus where you can read, study or just relax in between classes. And we've listed answers to few of the more frequently asked questions that we get from commuters.

Q: I'm a nontraditional student. Is there a club I can join with other adult students?  

A: Yes. The Nontraditional Student Association gives adult learners the opportunity to connect with peers, make lifelong friends and build relationships that can be beneficial both academically and personally. Nontraditional students can also join any of the more than 40 clubs and organizations we have on campus.

Q: Are there things to do on campus if I have a break between classes?  

A: Yes. There are many things to do. You can study in the library or play a game of pool in the Frame-Westerberg Commons game room.

You can also grab a bite to eat in the Commons Café, work out in the Sport and Fitness Center, or watch TV in the Commons.

Q: Will I be able to handle the work load?  

A: Academic help is available if you need it. And, our professors are easily accessible and always willing to help. You also can work with trained and certified tutors at the Academic Success Center, which also provides other types of assistance.
