Assiniboine Community College is making life just a little easier for its mature students: at least in the pocketbook.
Students will no longer have to pay a $95 fee to apply to the Adult Collegiate, the college announced Friday in a news release.
The removal of the application cost comes after a two-year trial period in which the application fee was waived, thanks to support from 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, Trades, Technology and Access Programs, which includes responsibility for the Adult Collegiate.
Students in the Mature Student High School program are not charged tuition to attend. However, they do pay small course fees of about $46 per course.
Students who have not completed a high school diploma may take up to eight courses tuition-free.
