Nontraditional Students: Perceived Barriers to Degree Completion.
Ryder, Ronald A.; And Others
College Student Affairs Journal, v13 n2 p5-13 Spr 1994
Surveyed nontraditional college students (those over age 25) concerning barriers encountered in pursuit of their college education. Findings from 100 nontraditional students suggest that older students have needs which are not addressed by institutions. Greatest identified hindrances to degree attainment were financial problems and academic advising. Nonetheless, respondents expressed confidence about likelihood of completing degrees. (Author/NB)
