Mature Students

Mature students are eager to enroll and participate in Ontario post-secondary education, but often have inequitable access to appropriate support. The needs and characteristics of mature students are unique due to the additional responsibilities and various circumstances they face. In the pursuit to make education accessible for all students, it is critical that social, financial, academic, and employment supports are tailored to address mature students’ needs and facilitate their ability to experience an enjoyable and rewarding post-secondary education.
