English term or phrase: Retirees
The context is that of universities... We talk about students and retirees.

Can someone help me?

Italian translation:studenti che si sono ritirati dal corso
Explanation:
not sure from your text if you need translation of students that are retirees but in such a case, it would not be students "che hanno abbandonato gli studi" since it would mean that they have left University "for good" but that have "dropped" a certain class or classes. If this is the contect then the translation is appropriate.

Ciao,
Elena
