Mature Student Applicant:

Adults can apply to attend ACATCM as mature students. This is intended to allow applicants who otherwise will not qualify for admission to be considered, based on the skills and experience they have acquired since leaving school.

Applications by mature students are evaluated differently as we do recognize that mature students have life experience that younger students may not have, such as work experience, experience as a parent or independent learning.

We consider A mature student is:

  • A student who has graduated from high school but lacks post-secondary education.
  • A student who did not graduate from high school and is looking to gain admission five years after their last year in high school.
  • A student who has been away from formal education for five years or more.
