Advisement Transfer/Non-traditional Students

Before Classes Begin

After acceptance, transfer and adult students need to go through the advisement & course selection process to identify appropriate courses and plan a realistic schedule. For first-time students, advisement will occur during one of several transfer student orientation programs called Navigate Armstrong, which are designed specifically for transfer and nontraditional students.

Nontraditional Freshmen

Adults over the age of 25 who enter college for the first time are sometimes called nontraditional students. Nontraditional students have unique challenges and needs, and they often feel a little intimidated by the thought of college enrollment. However, it doesn't take long for nontraditional students to realize that they fit right in. Nontraditional freshmen are often some of the most successful students at Armstrong. And they find that school is much more enjoyable the second time around!
