Mature Student

This category of admission (Mature Student) applies to domestic applicants who completed their secondary studies in Canada but did not graduate from Grade 12. They must be at least 21 years of age and have demonstrated an ability to handle university courses through their work experience or other intellectual pursuits. This may include, for example, recent completion of grade 12 GED, completion of a diploma program, record of achievement at work, and evidence of intellectual pursuit or ability to handle intellectual material.

Letters of reference or additional documentation are normally required to support the decision to admit under this category. Prior Learning Assessment processes may apply. The decision to admit must be approved by the Dean of the program.

Acsenda School of Management reserves the right to determine whether an applicant can be considered admissible or classified as a mature applicant. Once admitted under the ‘mature’ category these applicants will become, upon registration, a ‘regular’ student and therefore must achieve and maintain the minimum academic required of ‘regular’ students.
