Mature Admission

The University of Regina recognizes that adults bring with them a wealth of life experience, but may not necessarily have completed formal education. That is why we offer mature student admission.

For admissions purposes, mature students are individuals who are over the age of 21, have taken less than 15-24 credit hours of university courses (depending on the faculty), and do not meet the high school admission requirements. Mature students typically demonstrate their academic potential through a personal statement that explains their achievements, life experiences, goals, and motivations to succeed in their desired program.
