Samford University’s Adult Degree Program (ADP) will hold an information session for prospective students Tuesday, Aug. 2.

The event is scheduled from 5:45 -7 p.m. in Samford’s Pete Hanna Center hospitality suite. Faculty members, current students and adult degree alumni will discuss their academic experience and answer questions. Samford president Dr. Andrew Westmoreland will also speak.

Samford’s ADP enables adults to earn a bachelor’s degree or complete a paralegal certificate through evening classes. The bachelor of science in interdisciplinary studies is designed especially for working adults, according to program director Laura Lee.

It is not too late to get admitted and registered for the fall 2011 term, Lee added. Financial aid is available for most students in the program.

Fall semester classes begin Aug. 29.
