Concordia University has a tradition of concern for the education of Mature students; it has always sought to assist students aged 21 and over to undertake undergraduate studies. The staff of the Faculty of Arts and Science provide guidance and encouragement to all Mature Entry students as they begin the challenging journey of plunging into courses and programs in a very large urban university after what could have been years away from classes and studying. Mature students who are seeking first‑year academic advice on returning to university studies are encouraged to contact the office of Student Academic Services of the Faculty of Arts and Science. See Section 14.1 Admission as a Mature Student for more information.
