Financial Aid for Non-Traditional Students

The U.S. Department of Education recognizes the needs of Non-Traditional Students (NTS). There is a page on its site that the potential NTS can use as a type of check list to consider possibilities such as, types of schools, testing and so on.

The opening paragraph of the site states:
“Today, education is for everyone. The U.S. Department of Education estimates that 90 million individuals participate in some form of adult education each year, including training and basic education offered outside traditional higher education. To serve this immense market, most colleges have structured programs and services specifically for adult learners. Forty percent of American college students, or almost 6 million people, are 25 years of age or older.”
