Alternative Applications

If you are interested in pursuing undergraduate programs at UTM, but do not hold the published admission requirements, you may be eligible for one of our many alternative application pathways:

  • Bridging Pathway: Mature students who do not meet traditional admission requirements are welcome to join us for the opportunity for successful direct admission to university level studies.
  • Part-Time Students: A part-time student is one taking less than a 60% course load in a certificate, degree, or diploma program. Take a load and do it part-time.

  • Senior Citizen Student: If you are at least 65 years of age by the first day of the term may register with special conditions.
