For nontraditional students,that is students not coming straight from high school,the experience may seem especially frightening.
What correction should be made to this sentence?
1. insert a comma after is.
2. change the spelling of straight to strait.
3. remove the comma after high school.
4. change the spelling of experience to experiance
5. change may seem to seemed.
This sentence is basically correct and needs no changes. I suggest, however, using em dashes instead of your commas and adding a comma after 'that is'. With this punctuation the rhythm of the sentence will be clearer.
For an explanation of em dashes, see the link above.
Hope this helps,
