Students entering this program will be provided with additional supports from FNMI Services and will work with Academic Advising in completing Academic Success Plans.
This is a 24-credit, 8-month (two semesters) college program serving FNMI students who want to enhance their opportunities for success, and sample from a variety of program offerings. The curriculum consists of a total of eight courses preparing students for success and admission into their choice of Lethbridge College programs identified in the certificate.
In the first semester, students will work as part of a group with courses focusing on further enhancing students’ abilities in writing, college success, psychology and life, and cultural awareness.
