Non-first-time students a fix for decreasing enrollment? - Lauren Williams, University Business

The number of Americans age 18 to 21, the traditional college age, has decreased by nearly 700,000 since 2011—from 18.1 to 17.4 million—according to research from the University of Virginia. With this decline, many colleges could turn to older non-first-time students to maintain enrollment numbers and financial goals. Yet, more than 2.5 million adult learners who re-entered higher ed between 2005 and 2008 have not completed a degree, according to a new study released by the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA).
