Welcome Adult Learners

  • It's never too late to apply to college and change your career path. At Lambton College, we can help get you started on your educational journey whether you've been out of school for one year or 40 years.

    What is a Mature Student?

    Don't fear the term "mature student" or "adult learner"; all that means is that you have been out of high school for at least one year, you're 19 years of age or older and may or may not have a high school diploma. These terms could apply to a variety of applicants. Want to learn more about Mature Student Assessments?
