Non-Traditional Students

It’s never too early or too late to find your direction and follow it.

Our students have a common journey and overall goal of earning a degree, but they don’t all come from the same place or starting point. They bring different perspectives and life experiences, which enriches the Northern Vermont University learning community.

There’s more than one path for you to pursue your NVU degree. No matter what your direction is, we’ll help you reach your destination.
