*Defining the term "nontraditional" is challenging so use your best judgment when nominating and indicate what makes your nominee both outstanding and nontraditional. Some characteristics of a nontraditional student may include:

  • Delaying enrollment or taking a break from college
  • Working full time (30+ hours per week) while enrolled in school
  • Considered financially independent
  • Student-parent (or has other dependents)
  • Military Veteran
  • Numerous additional factors exist so if you feel a student is nontraditional and outstanding, please nominate that person!
