There are two ways in which these non-traditional students can matriculate into the college. They are as follows:

1.) Direct Entry : Adult students that meet the normal pre-requisites for admission to a degree programme. Alike a standard freshman or transfer admission, prospective students would be required to submit the appropriate documentation corresponding to the relative category of admission. 

2.) Adult Preparatory Entry : The Adult Preparatory Entry Programme is designed for adult students that do not meet the admission requirements to matriculate via the Direct Entry Scheme.
