Auditing students can sit in on a course without taking exams or earning credits.

Upgrading students have already completed a degree program and wish to take additional courses.

Students may take one or more courses without being registered in an academic program in our Open Studies option.

Mature students (applicants over 22 years of age who did not complete high school) can visit the Continuing Education website for information on how to apply. An advisor is available to meet with you, so call 902-420-5492 or email conted@smu.ca to make an appointment.

Students applying to Open Studies, Auditing, Upgrading or Mature, must submit the paper version of the application.
