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).
of Wisconsin Colleges website now has a Returning
Adult Students information page. You can look up a college
near you and check out their Nontrad services!
I think this is
a great idea. I can't wait to look at all the pages. I already
have looked up four so far, and will be adding more information
about their pages ASAP. Great job, Wisconsin! I wish every state
had a central page like this. It will make it a lot easier for
Nontrads for get information. The site also says that every
campus in Wisconsin has an organization just for returning adult
students and its own advisor JUST FOR NONTRADS. I think this
is great, too.
I am glad that Wisconsin
is one of the leaders in Adult Education, Returning Adult Students,
and Nontraditional Student resources, because I am from this
The campuses that

UW Fond du Lac, UW Fox Valley, UW Manitowoc, UW Marathon County,
UW Marinette, UW Marshfield/Wood County, UW Richland, UW Rock
County, UW Washington County, and UW Waukesha.
The campuses that have a special student advisor just for nontrads

UW Fox Valley, UW Manitowoc, UW Marathon County, UW Marinette,
UW Marshfield/Wood County, UW Richland, UW Rock County, UW Sheboygan,
UW Washington County, UW Waukesha, and UWC Online.
Another great link
on this page is the How
To guide for nontraditional students, which contains an
online application form.
of Wisconsin at Oshkosh has a Nontraditional Student Organization. You can go to this page: http://www.uwosh.edu/llce to find out more about it. They do not have a web page right now, but they are active. (5-2010).
However, I see that
they now have a great site called Adult
Student Access Services, too. This new site looks
very helpful to new nontraditional students.
University of Wisconsin at Sheboygan has a Non-Traditional
Student group page here.
especially like the fact that the University offers monetary
help for child care and has a group called Zoomers for their adult students. They answer many questions on their
friendly web pages. Great job!
