Non-Traditional Students

Non-Traditional Students

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:

  1. the applicant is financially independent
  2. the applicant's primary responsibility is to duties other than being a student
  3. 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.
