Nontraditional Students

Nontraditional students at BGSU are very important to our institution. There are many reasons why students may identify as having a nontraditional experience. We define nontraditional students as those who are 23 or older, students who are parents, or students who may identify as a nontraditional student based on other circumstances. Our office is here to support and advocate for you. Please reach out if you have any questions!
