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).

The University 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 state.

The campuses that have websites for returning adult students are UW Barron County, 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 are UW Baraboo/Sauk County, UW Barron County, UW Fond du Lac, 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.

The University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh has a Nontraditional Student Organization. You can go to this page: 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.

The University of Wisconsin at Sheboygan has a Non-Traditional Student group page here.

I 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!
