Welcome Mature Students!
A mature student is one who is age 19 or older without an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and has not attended high school for a minimum of 12 months.
If you possess an OSSD, regardless of your age or number of years out of high school, you will be considered on the basis of your OSSD and Mature Student Status does not apply.
In addition to the OSSD equivalent, Mature Student applications must meet all specific entrance requirements (admission requirements) of the program to which they are applying.
Equivalency test is available in Mathematics and English for Mature Student Applicants.
Please contact the Test Centre at 905‑735‑2211, ext. 7589 for more information about testing and related fees. Test fees are payable at the time tests are written.
