  • have been out of school for a minimum of five years.
Such candidates will be admitted to a degree program as part-time students provided they first complete, with a minimum of 60 per cent, the equivalent of a 1.0-credit course offered for degree credit by the Faculty of Arts and Science, Queen's University. Students whoobtain at least 50 per cent but not 60 per cent on this credit, may subsequently complete a second credit and must then obtain an average of at least 60 per cent on the 2.0 credits. Although students admitted under the Mature Student Regulation may meet the 60 per cent requirement on the average of two 0.5-credit courses, they may not enrol in both courses in the same term.
