If you are an adult student and/or a military/veteran, welcome to SPSU! Adult students have always been an important part of the SPSU student population. SPSU was started in 1948 as a branch campus of Georgia Tech to offer evening programs to adult and military students after World War II. While our location (Chamblee to Marietta) has changed, our programs have expanded, our campus has matured, and our numbers have grown, adult students are still a major focus.
This website is designed to pull together information pertinent to our adult and military populations to help you discover your options at SPSU, find services and resources appropriate to your needs, identify people who can help, determine ways SPSU can do a better job of focusing on your needs.
