THEORY, PHILOSOPHY AND PRACTICE The GPS degree programs are founded on the understanding that learning is a lifelong process that is not confined to a traditional campus environment. Averett recognizes that the adult learner differs greatly from the traditional 18- to 22-year old college student. The adult learner brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the classroom and can be expected to share responsibility with the faculty member for successful outcomes. GPS curriculum provides valuable educational experiences to working adults whose access to higher education may be otherwise restricted or nonexistent.
ONE-TIME REGISTRATION Unlike traditional formats, the tool for registration is the Academic Calendar and Registration Form, which must be reviewed and signed by each student. The original document is maintained in the official academic file. This process is completed one time, at the beginning of the student&#x2019;s program.

sequentially. Course outlines are supplied with each course. The course outline, as a required supplement to the textbook, details activities and assignments designed to fulfill the course objectives. (Note: Students will be provided with a syllabus for each course. This document details grading criteria, expectations of students and supplemental course information as established by the faculty member.)
Classes focus on writing, speaking and critical thinking across the curriculum. Students take a practical approach to academic concepts presented by the faculty member, taking advantage of the extensive professional experiences adult learners bring to the classroom. The GPS program uses the American Psychological Association (APA) writing style in all coursework.
