Nontraditional Students


Nontraditional Students

  • For over two decades, nontraditional students have comprised close to 40 percent of the college population, spanning a range of backgrounds and experiences from Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans and GED® credential holders to 55-year-old professionals and skilled workers in career transition. ACE is committed to supporting this student population and to finding ways to enhance degree access and attainment.
