Non-Traditional Students Network

From the SOLE website: The UCLA Non Tradition Student Network is an organization and support system which brings together all UCLA students who are returning to higher education after pursuing various walks of life. We assist students with facilitation of resources, and advocate for our growing community which is fostered by non-traditional students, advocates and amazing faculty. Our Mission: As the Non-Traditional Student Network is to function as both a social, academic, and institutional support system for the diverse and growing demographic of nontraditional students at UCLA. What is a non traditional student?

-Anyone returning to school after taking a break from their educational goals.
-Working professionals finishing a degree or working on a new one.
-Parents returning to school after starting a family.
-Students returning from military service.
-Older students returning to school after taking time off to pursue other life goals.
-Transfer students
-Commuter students
-Married Students
-Students who work full-time while enrolled and are financially independent. 

The "non traditional student" experience, and identity, falls outside of a traditional high school-to-college path.
