Mature Student

Mature applicants who do not meet the academic requirements of Briercrest College’s General Admission Policy may still be eligible to study at Briercrest. To be considered for Mature Admission you must meet the following criteria:

  • You must be 23 years of age by the first day of classes.
  • You must be entering the first year of study. Applicants who have completed 24 or more transfer-eligible postsecondary credit hours are not eligible to apply for Mature Admission.
  • International students will not be eligible for Mature Admission.

Step 1

Step 2: Submit high school transcripts

Contact your provincial Ministry of Education to request that your final high school transcript be sent to Briercrest College. You can find the necessary contact information by selecting your province below. If your province isn’t listed, you’ll need to contact your high school to obtain an official high school transcript.

Step 3

The Admissions Office will ask for the following information which will help us evaluate your readiness for studying at Briercrest College:

  • Proof of Age: A copy of your driver’s license, transcript document, or birth certificate.
  • A written request for Mature Admission: This is a statement that explains your interest in Briercrest College (reason for choosing us), education and career goals, and overall desire to return to school. You will need to speak to your ability to undertake university-level study and let us know whatever else you think might be relevant to your request for Mature Admission.
  • Current Resume: This will help us understand what you have been up to since high school and how you have become the person you are today.
  • Proof of Other Credentials (if applicable): Copies of supporting documents* covering any noncredit programs you might have completed (job-related courses, Adult Basic Education, General Equivalency Diploma) should be included with your written submission

Please take note of the following:

  • Once accepted, you will be required to pay a $200 non-refundable confirmation deposit. This deposit will be credited toward paying your tuition, and will confirm your intention of attending the College.
Most satisfying: the support and encouragement from the staff, faculty, and students that can only be achieved in this particular learning community. Most disappointing: that it took me so long to find this place.
