The Office of Non-Traditional Student Services

Join us at our senior leadership reception as we celebrate the successes of our graduating Non-Traditional Students and NTSO Leadership!

Fall 2016 Senior Leadership Reception


A non-traditional student is an adult student who is older than the traditional undergraduate, who has had a break in his/her formal learning experience and is now returning to the university or entering the university for the first time. These students have additional responsibilities not common in traditional undergraduates. They may be full time employees, primary breadwinners, caregivers for children or adults, veterans, or individuals returning to college after a break in their education. A non-traditional student can be enrolled full-time or part-time. In excess of 600 non-traditional students are currently enrolled at Shippensburg University.
