Executive Summary

The pathway allows successful students who would otherwise not be admissible to university, to be eligible to enter a Bachelor’s degree with advanced standing. The pathway is intended to be delivered during the summer before University starts but after their high school grades are known. The courses will concentrate on academic success, communication, and math skills necessary to be successful in first year University. The program also offers the option to transfer instead to the college and enter a General Arts and Science certificate program.
