Mature Students

York recognizes the value mature students bring to the classroom. We have dedicated support services to guide you along the way, that consider your academic, professional and personal development.

Am I a mature student?

The definition of a mature student can vary widely depending on self-identification, academic background and of course, age. You are a mature student if:
  • you are at least 20 years old by the end of the calendar year of admission to the University;
  • you have have been out of full-time high school studies for at least two years; and
  • you have attempted less than one full year of studies at an accredited college or university.
