The Nontrad Journal encourages submissions regarding trends in higher education that have a direct impact on nontraditional students, evaluation of programs that support nontraditional students, studies of model programs, and investigations of effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of programs conducted in "real world" settings, as well as, descriptive studies of "cutting edge" programs, especially those informed by the lived experience of the nontraditional student, are also welcome.
