Mature Student information sessions

Have you been out of school for a while and are now considering attending college? Did you know, roughly 60 per cent of first-year college students are mature students over the age of 19 and returning to school? If they can do it, so can you! Come to one of our monthly sessions and find out how you can succeed at college.

  • Tuesday, November 7
  • Tuesday, December 5

All sessions will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Student Services building (SSB), Oshawa campus, Room SSB116 A/B. Free parking is available in the Commencement Lot, or in Founders Lot 2. You will be required to take a ticket to gain entry, but we will provide you with a validated ticket to use on exit. Prior to arriving please review our locations and campus maps webpages.
