The CUE Program

The CUE program is home to approximately 60 adult students, some full and some part-time. CUE students fulfill the same degree requirements, enjoy the same distinguished faculty, and attend the same small, intimate classes as Drew’s traditional-aged students. They have the same access to our graduate-level library, honors programs, counseling and internship facilities, independent research projects, and special international and off-campus study opportunities as their younger classmates. More information about the academic programs can be found on the College of Liberal Arts website.

Designed with You in Mind

At the same time, Drew recognizes that older students have different needs and face unique challenges in returning to school. With that in mind, the Office of Continuing Education provides specialized support for adult learners, starting with individualized pre-admissions counseling, a streamlined admissions process and an orientation designed especially for returning students. Unlike other Drew undergraduates, CUE students may elect to attend classes on a full or part-time basis. Additionally, CUE students may apply for admission of their children to Drew’s on-campus child care center.

The CUE Community

The CUE program offers adult students the benefits of a supportive community within a community. CUE students often gather for bagel breakfasts, informal dinners, campus events, and visits to the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey. The heart of our community is the CUE Lounge, a space dedicated solely for adult students. Located in the main undergraduate classroom center, the CUE Lounge is a place to have coffee with friends, meet with a study group, or catch up on reading for the next class. One of the greatest strengths of the CUE program is the opportunity to meet other adults who are working toward the same goals and facing similar challenges.
