If you are at least 21 years old, have been out of full-time high school study for four years and have not attended a university or community college, you may qualify for admission to the University of King's College under the "mature student" category. In order to be registered as a student at King's College, you must be admitted to, and enrol in, a degree programme.
In order to enter a degree programme directly, applicants must meet the academic requirements. Otherwise, mature students may be eligible for the "University Exploration" programme at Dalhousie University. Applicants interested in this option are advised to contact the Dalhousie Registrar's Office at 902-494-2450.
If you apply to King's as a "mature student," you should enclose a letter indicating your activities since leaving high school and your reasons for expecting to successfully complete a university programme if you are admitted. A transcript of academic work in high school and beyond is required.
Those interested in admission to King's under the "mature student" category are advised to contact the King's Registrar's Office at 902-422-1271.
