Mature and re-entry students

Academic Skills Development Workshops

If you have been away from academia for a while, going back to school may seem daunting. To help you dust off your study skills and get re-acquainted with academic life, Campus Life & Engagement coordinates specifically tailored orientation and academic preparedness sessions for new undergraduate "mature" students.  These workshops may also be of interest to new graduate students who are returning to university after a few years since completing their undergraduate degree.

Registration is coming soon!
