Mature Students

Any applicant at least 19 years old with a minimum of two years out of school, who is lacking requirements for a program or course, will be considered for mature student admission status.

Although the grade level requirement (Grade 10, Grade 12, etc.) will be waived for students classified as mature, individual course prerequisites listed for the programs or courses must be met.

Any applicant less than 19 but a full year out of school will be assessed individually. Such applicants may be required to make up courses before being admitted to a program. All applicants applying for mature student admission status are urged to seek assistance from an academic advisor.

Exception: university preparatory students
