Non-Traditional

This identity community is here to provide resources for non-traditional Raiders!

A nontraditional student is an adult student who is older than the traditional undergraduate, who has had a break in his/her formal learning experience and is now returning to the university or entering the university for the first time. These students have additional responsibilities not common in traditional undergraduates. They may be full-time employees, primary breadwinners, caregivers for children or adults, veterans, or individuals returning to college after a break in their education. A nontraditional student can be enrolled full-time or part-time.
