1,500 adults are served by appointments, 1,200 by programs, and many more via phone/email. ACSSS admits 1,500 to 2,000 students each fall, spring, and summer. This includes adults preparing for graduate school, adults seeking professional development, visiting undergraduates, language institute participants, tuition-waived Wisconsin senior guest auditors, and high school students. These students fill spots in UW-Madison credit courses after degree status students have enrolled. 45 adult students in degree status are supported each year by the $100,000 scholarship/grant program, mostly due to private donors. Most adults say they could not return to college without the personal and/or financial support offered by ACSSS.
