Going Back to School

Mature Student Status

Thinking about going back to school but not sure if you can do so without your high school diploma or equivalent?

Admission opportunities exist for applicants who don’t have their high school diploma or equivalent but are 19 years of age and older and have been out of high school for a minimum of one year.

Mature students may be required to complete pre-admission testing depending on the courses completed in high school.

Dan, what was it like going back to school at Ridgetown Campus?

"I found it easy to return to post-secondary education. I was keen to complete my Agriculture Diploma and enhance my skills and knowledge, so returning to school was an experience I was excited about."
