About College Factual Rankings

The "non-traditional" student label refers to any student that falls outside the "norm" of first-time, full-time students under the age of 25. Included in this label are part-time students, transfer students, as well as adults heading back to school after an absence, or going for the first time. Non-traditional students represent the bulk of those going to college today, making it extremely important for colleges to begin to cater to their unique needs. To present the absolute best options, this ranking includes both traditional universities with distance learning programs as well as primarily online institutions.
