dc.description.abstract With the massification of higher education in the OECD countries beginning in the late 1980s, the profile of the student body has changed dramatically, with an increasing number of higher education students outside the traditional 18-24 years of age. However, a large number of students are still underrepresented. This paper reviews how nontraditional students are defined and represented in selected studies in order to understand how different approaches influence the effectiveness of institutional policies. The label nontraditional may no longer be a useful one and micro-level as well as macro-level lenses are needed in order to understand who is underrepresented in the context of changing higher education policies. en_US
