Its aim is to recognize the special achievements of adults who accomplish academic excellence while facing competing interests of home and work. The honor society is dedicated to the advancement of scholarship and recognizes high scholastic achievement in an adult student’s career. By doing so, it encourages many students to continue toward and earn associate and baccalaureate degrees.
