ACC waives application fee for mature students

January 9, 2019

Assiniboine Community College has announced that they are waiving the application fee for mature students in order to make post-secondary education more accessible. The removal of the cost comes after a two-year trial period that was supported by the Assiniboine Community College Foundation. “It’s a good thing, in terms of making the classes affordable and accessible to mature students who want to get their high school credential or upgrade so they can take a post-secondary program,” said Kate Pelletier, Dean of Trades, Technology and Access Programs. The Brandon Sun adds that students in the Mature Student High School program are only charged minimal course fees to attend, and that students who have not completed a high school diploma may take up to eight courses tuition-free.
