For admissions purposes, a nontraditional student (adult student) may be defined as one who is older than the traditional undergraduate, and who meets one or more of the following criteria:
the applicant is financially independent
the applicant's primary responsibility is to duties other than being a student
the applicant has not been regularly enrolled in an educational institution for three years or more
Students with a high school diploma or equivalency and at least three years break in education are not required to submit SAT or ACT scores. Students are, however, required to submit a formal application and official transcripts of all academic work completed.
