Traditional Students vs. Non-Traditional Students

Marketing to and recruiting non-traditional students is very different than for your traditional college students. Whereas traditional college students tend to be free from many of life’s responsibilities, non-traditional students typically have full-time jobs, families and financial obligations. For this reason, colleges need to use a different set of tools in order to attract students in this demographic.

The reasons why non-traditional students would enroll in your institution are different from the reasons that traditional students enroll. Non-traditional students look for benefits such as ease of transfer, flexibility of programs, adult services, affordability, and military friendliness.

All things being equal, non-traditional students want an education that is flexible, convenient and cost-effective for them. Your institution needs to demonstrate its ability to meet the needs of these non-traditional students; but most importantly, your institution needs to follow through with the promises that it makes to prospective students, regardless of whether or not they’re traditional or non-traditional students.
