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. Please pardon any links that no longer work. They will soon be deleted or fixed this year (2015).

Weber State University has a Nontraditional Student Social Support group on You can sign up and see special events, (scroll down), other members, a message board, and more. I joined here to find out more about the group. The University also has a special Nontraditional Student page here that explains about their Hourly Childcare Center and Nontraditional Student Center that (from the site):

"...has a lounge, kitchen, computer lab, study area, and Hourly Childcare Center to help meet the needs of students who are over 25, and/or married/divorced/widowed, a parent, a veteran, and/or disabled. The center provides free hot drinks daily. Peer mentors are available to help navigate the campus. The mentors plan free events for students to help make the most of their educational experiences at WSU while still balancing family, home, and work."

This sounds great!

Weber State University at Davis also has a Nontraditional Student information page here that includes a link to the Meetup group.

ASUU at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City has a Nontraditional Student Outreach Board. From their site: "We provide programs and resources that help make student life easier and more enjoyable for non-traditional students." You can find out more here. They celebrate Nontraditional Student Week and also have a Thanksgiving Bowling Event, plus some helpful links like Returning to the U, the Women's Resource Center, the Veteran's Services Office,and Alpha Sigma Lambda, which is a national honor society just for nontraditional students.

They have an honors ceremony called the Lighthouse Ceremony to honor chosen nontraditional students too. This sounds great! Just scroll down at this page to see the latest photo of honorees.

During Nontraditional Student Outreach Week, nontraditional students were treated to new events, including a massage day and information and activities. See the article from the Daily Utah Chronicle to find out more.

I like the way the University of Utah has a special Nontraditional Student link on their Undergraduate Admissions page.
