The National Center for Education Statistics defines nontraditional students as individuals who may: have delayed enrollment into post secondary education by a year or more; be employed full time while enrolled; attend the institution part-time; be financially independent from parents; have dependents other than a spouse; be a single parent; or do not hold a standard high school diploma.
UNC Charlotte defines adult students as those who are over the age of 24. OASES recognizes that all nontraditional students may not meet the age definition of an adult student on campus, therefore our office serves as a resource to both adult and nontraditional students for their various academic needs.
Here is a list of some common websites and technology tools you may need to acces as a student at UNC Charlotte. These tools create easier access to your course information, registration, contact with instructors and advisors, and other university resources.
