Admission Requirements

 Adult students may be considered for admission if they meet either of the following conditions:

  1. completion of the OSSD, Ontario grade 12 (old curriculum) or equivalent standing and at least two years of work experience prior to the first day of classes for the session to which they apply; or
  2. if the above requirement is not met, the applicant must be at least 21 years of age and have at least two years of work experience prior to the first day of classes for the session to which they apply.

Applicants are encouraged and in some cases may be required to submit a personal assessment letter outlining the following:

  1. why they feel they may be successful at university
  2. current career aspirations; and
  3. work experience since the most recent attendance at a school

Applicants are encouraged to describe any employment experiences, leisure activities or volunteer work/community service that demonstrates good citizenship and leadership qualities.

The university will admit only those applicants who, in the opinion of the admissions committee, are adequately prepared on the basis of previous academic training and/or life-skill experience to undertake university courses. Adult students are urged to avail themselves of the university's services (academic counselling, study-skills counselling, personal counselling and career counselling).
