Did you know that mature student status may be granted to applicants who are over 19 years old and do not have a high school diploma or GED? It is intended to allow applicants who have not completed high school the opportunity to be considered for admission, based on the skills and experience they have acquired since leaving school. Mature students are still required to complete course prerequisites. Exact requirements may vary from college to college. Many mature students opt for continuing education classes.

Attending this Toronto education option allows students to complete diplomas or certificate in a range of areas.
