Admission Requirements & Application Details for Mature Students
General Admission Requirements
To be considered for admission as a Mature/Adult Student, you must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident who has not been engaged in full-time studies for at least two years and have completed less than one year at a community college. You have never attended a University and do not meet the General Admission Requirements.
To meet the General Admission Requirements to Lakehead, you will need to:
- Successfully complete the required prerequisite courses at the Grade 12 U or M level, or equivalent, for your program of choice, and
- Demonstrate academic success to the Admissions Committee:
- This may involve completing the Mature Student Profile, at the request of the Admissions Committee. The Admissions Profile provides you with the opportunity to detail your skills and experience in order to demonstrate your potential for success at university.
Note: Should your academic background not reflect your true potential for success, the Academic Support Access Program acts as an entryway for students whose academic average falls slightly below the required admission average. Applicants are automatically considered for admission to the Academic Support Access Program, subject to program eligibility.
