The Nontrad Journal publishes original contributions related to the academic and professional programs and services that aide and support nontraditional student success. The Nontrad Journal’s target audience includes leaders in higher education, academic professionals, faculty, administrators, as well as nontraditional students in higher education. At ANTSHE we believe that your hard work should be celebrated. Share your research, video, or book in the Nontrad Journal. 

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.
