Schools with Nontraditional Student Support

Here are some older links and information about Nontraditional Student support in this state. There may still be some clues here to help you find help and support at your school. Please pardon any links that no longer work. They will soon be deleted or fixed this year (2015).

I am very impressed with the resources Colorado offers its nontraditional students. My favorite site so far is the first one listed here:

The Colorado State University Resources for Adult Learners Office.

This information was taken straight off this group's website. Also, they have a Nontraditional student group with their own website, too!

Their office address is listed as being in Fort Collins. In the past, Colorado State University has celebrated Non-Traditional Student week, had an Adult Student Newsletter, orientations, A No Limits to Learning series, a Peer Mentor program, nature outings, family support, free athletic tickets for members children, Pizza gatherings, Java Jumpstart meetings, and much more. Now they are redoing their web pages and programs, but still pay special attention to their nontraditional students. Here is what they offer now (from the website):

"Off-Campus Student Services/Resources for Adult Learners offers a variety of services and programs for commuter, off-campus and non-traditional students. * A spacious student lounge to study, check email, eat lunch or relax between classes * On-line rental listings for apartments, condos, houses, rooms, and seeking roommates * Scholarships and scholarship information; childcare referrals; athletic tickets for children, and Pinnacle Honor Society for non-traditional students * Support groups, peer mentor programs and social events for single parent students, veteran students, women students, and commuter students * Assistance with neighborhood relations and problem solving * Publications and assistance with understanding your rights and responsibilities as a tenant * and much more!"

The University of Colorado at Boulder has a Nontraditional student center. Here is the description of it, straight from the website:

Students aged 25 and above comprise 8 percent of undergraduates and 20 percent of all students at CU-Boulder.

Colorado State University at Pueblo offers nontraditional students special days like the Halloween Carnival and also Family Fun Days. Here is their description from their website:

The NSS staff plans programs and activities for the CSU-Pueblo community.

I can tell from looking up these sites this month that Colorado values its nontraditional students. There is even a page at the Colorado Department of Public Education telling about a program of interest to nontraditional students called the Department of Extended Studies. This program links colleges and universities who offer extended studies programs ands continuing education programs.
