“A new father trying to provide for his family. A grandmother finishing what she started more than four decades ago. A man navigating multiple schools, hidden curriculums and financial hurdles. These are just some of the older students working toward a degree in the U.S. The majority of today’s college students have characteristics that describe them as “nontraditional”: They work; they’re raising children; they’re not coming straight from high school. And while some just take a couple-year detour to make money or care for family, others are going back far later in life.”
