Preferences and Experiences of Traditional and Nontraditional University Students
Woods, Kathryn; Frogge, George
Journal of Continuing Higher Education, v65 n2 p94-105 2017
This study compared and contrasted preferences and experiences of traditional and nontraditional students. Students at a midsized state university in the southeast region of the United States were surveyed to determine the number of hours spent working off campus, hours spent studying, their preferred learning format, and current grade point average (GPA). Results of the study revealed that nontraditional students surveyed spent significantly more hours studying and working off campus, and significantly more traditional students than nontraditional students were enrolled in school full-time. No statistically significant differences were observed between groups regarding preferences in learning format and GPAs.
