Reality check: A vital update to the landmark NCES 2002 study of nontraditional college students

In a landmark study for the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES), Choy (2002) reported 73% of the 1999–2000 undergraduate student population displayed one or more “nontraditional” characteristics—such as delaying enrollment after high school, working at least part-time, and/or being a single parent. Choy provided valuable information to help U.S. legislators and educational institutions make informed decisions about how to serve the needs of college students. Over a decade later, no researchers have updated Choy’s report using NCES data to reflect the frequency of nontraditional characteristics in today’s college student population. 
 The purpose of the current study was to understand and describe the characteristics of today’s college students and compare the findings with the results presented by Choy (2002) over 10 years ago.
