hat do you think of when you hear the term non-traditional student?
There are students who fit into this category, and they are aware that
they fit. But some students may have never considered themselves to
be non-traditional. Students are labeled non-traditional for many reasons:

they have dependents (spouse, children); they take more than four years
to graduate.
