The truth about going to college as an adult

You've already got commitments, financial responsibilities and a busy schedule. Add in the idea of going to college, and it can seem overwhelming. But we're here to tell you the truth: it's not as tough as you think.


Knowing that your life is busy, we made sure to offer programs that allow for flexibility and not frustration. You can choose from certificate programs, part-time studies, online and distance learning options. Whether you take your courses in the classroom or online, daytime or evening, we're confident you'll find a program that fits your life.

Once you find a program that fits your life, it's essential to figure out how everything else fits into that, too. Not sure how to balance the expenses of tuition, books, food and accommodation? That's okay, that's where our awards, scholarships, grants, bursaries and student loans come in to help cover these costs. Have children? We offer on-campus Child Care so you can care for your children and your education at the same time. Maybe you'll need some extra help or resources while you're here? From our Library, Academic Support, and Counselling & Career Centre, we've got you covered.

So, why wait? There's more to learn. Choose more.
