How Webster University Serves Non-Traditional Students
The “non-traditional” student label refers to any student that falls outside the “norm” of first-time, full-time students under the age of 25. Included in this label are part-time students and transfer students as well as adults heading back to school after an absence or going for the first time.
Non-traditional students represent the bulk of those going to college today, making it extremely important for colleges to begin to cater to their unique needs.
