What can the Adult Student Life (ASL) Office do for you?

Welcome to the Office of Adult Student Life! 

We understand that as an adult student you are met with the demands of a very busy lifestyle.  Balancing academic work with your personal and work lives can be a great struggle.  We are here to help you meet your goals and achieve the success you are striving for.  Our office will provide you with resources needed to explore academic options, develop goal strategies, and connect with Saint Joseph’s University. 

The role of the Adult Student Life Office is to assist adult and off campus students in overcoming obstacles and to provide Student Life resources to foster academic success.  The ASL Office seeks to help adult students develop a personalized plan for success, coordinate adult student groups, organize programs to meet adult student needs, and provide adult student advocacy as needed. Programs and individual coaching sessions will enable adult and off campus students to:

  • connect with university resources,
  • explore academic options,
  • and develop strategies for meeting their goals.

We look forward to hearing from you, receiving your input, and getting to know you better as you complete your education!  If you have any questions or concerns, you are encouraged to stop by our office in Barbelin Hall Room 122, phone us at 610-660-1074, or email  From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, (and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday) adult students can email any questions they might have which will be answered promptly or redirected to the appropriate person in the correct office.
