Supporting student success

There are a variety of programs and services to help you make the most of your academic career and beyond, including:

The Student Success Centre works with undergraduate and graduate students to strengthen and enhance their academic skills, to tackle challenges in their university learning, and to facilitate specialized supports.

The Aboriginal Student Services Centre (ASSC) provides an environment that encourages full access, participation and success for Aboriginal students.

The Career Centre can help you at any stage of your career – from finding part-time employment while you are in school, to finding full-time employment upon graduation.

Student Conduct and Accountability offers resources to help students ensure academic integrity in all that they do.

Additionally, there are a variety of groups and programs on campus that can help you achieve academic success, including:

Library Services: The Library offers many workshops to help you be more effective at using their resources. 

InfoLink: Offers a number of helpful resources such as a tutor registry and an exam registry. They can also help connect with you with appropriate student advisors in your faculty. 

Supporting student mental health

Student success is much more than academics — health and well-being is a necessity for your success. If you're too sick to go to class, stress is preventing you from focusing on assignments, or you're having a hard time with your personal relationships, your ability to be your best might suffer. There are many services on campus to support your physical, mental and social well-being.
