Traditional and Nontraditional Students
Traditional students graduate from high school in the spring of their senior year and enter college the fall semester after high school graduation (sometimes called the “current year”). As long as they go directly to college and stay in college, they are a traditional students.
Nontraditional students often do not go to college directly from high school. Either they take a year or more off between high school and college, or they start college and stop for some reason and return later. When they return to college, they are nontraditional students.
