Nontraditional Students

You are here


If you have been out of school for some time, or if you juggle school, work, family, home, and extracurricular activities, then you know what it’s like to be a nontraditional student. Nontraditional students include those who:

  • Come to college for the first time after many years of full-time employment.
  • Transfer from other institutions.
  • Hold down full-time jobs.
  • Take night classes.
  • Are part-time students, parents, or military veterans.

We welcome you to UNLV and are here to help your transition into college life be as smooth as possible.
