The Atkinson Centre for Mature and Part-Time Students

The Atkinson Centre for Mature and Part-Time Students responds to the unique needs of mature, part-time and transfer students from admission to graduation. We offer a wide range of student supports - orientation, first-year experience program, peer-to-peer mentoring and success series workshops.

We also offer a program committed to reducing academic barriers to accessing postsecondary study and increasing retention and graduation rates of students at risk. The Ready, Set, YU! program is a project funded under the Ontario Post-Secondary Access Inclusion Program (OPAIP). ​The program supports newly admitted high-school students and their successful transition into the post-secondary study.​
Students are provided with strategic and direct support/services including orientation, peer to peer mentoring, dedicated faculty-based advising, and referrals to campus resources (i.e. learning skill services, writing department, etc.) to prepare them for success.
