15-40 Segment 2: Helping Non-Traditional Students Succeed

A college education is usually a ticket to a better job, better health and overall life satisfaction – that is if you can get one. Non-traditional students — those who are older, who work fulltime or who have families – can have a tough time just figuring out how to apply to college, talk to a professor or find scholarships or financial aid. Our guest discusses the hurdles non-traditional students have to clear and what schools and communities can do to make their transition into higher education easier.

Host: Marty Peterson. Guest: Mike Rose, faculty member at the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, and author of the book Back to School: Why everyone deserves a second chance at education.
