Faculty and Staff Resources
Non-traditional students have the same educational goals as traditional students, but frequently have different learning needs and more responsibility in other areas of their lives. Balancing the needs of traditional and non-traditional students in the same student population takes extra attention and additional resources in order to understand and accommodate the specific needs of both groups.
If you have adult students needing assistance, please refer them to us at the Center for Adult and Returning Students. We can help both you and the student navigate to a successful conclusion. If you have questions about adult student needs and best practices in the classroom, on your syllabi, and as mentors and advisors, let us know. We are here to help you find answers and implement changes that work for you and your students.
