Here are some older links and information about Nontraditional Student support. There may still be some clues here to help you find help and support at your school.
Look for updates this year (2015). Or send in your information to bring this page up to date. Thanks!
State University has a group called O.W.L.S.
(Older and/or Wiser Law Students) We are here to support and
serve students who consider themselves non-traditional: students
older than 24, married students, part-time students, etc.
especially like the OWLS name. It suggests wisdom, which I believe
some people can achieve with age. I like it when groups also
include people who consider themselves non-traditional students.
This can help everyone get in that needs to be in the group.
State University in Lansing, Michigan has a Child Care Center
for young children, the Spartan Child Development Center at http://www.scdc.msu.edu/aboutlinks.html.
Students may apply for a Child Care scholarship. The center
is close to campus, but has a waiting list. I did not find a
non-traditional student group here.
Tech Nontraditional Student pages were made by an intern. They
give the definition of a non-traditional student as:
students meet one or more of the following criteria:
*25 years old or older
*married and/or divorced
back to school after a year or more. (from the site).
the welcome page, that links to others: http://www.edopp.mtu.edu/nontraditional/index.htm
page features a message board that requires a password. It is
a great idea for people at the school. Another page shows non-traditional
sites around the country, and they also have links to child
care in the area.
a survey on the site showing interesting facts about non-traditional
students at Michigan State. M ichigan Technological University
is located in Houghton, Michigan.
