About Steps

First Steps on the Path to University Success

LA&PS recognizes the importance of easing the transition to university and goes out of its way to provide students in the program with a supportive environment that bridges the learning experience between high school and university. These include:

  • a separate, more intimate orientation session focusing on their unique needs and concerns
  • one-on-one advising sessions with a professional advisor throughout their university career, dealing with academic, financial and personal concerns
  • a steps-specific first-year course that improves academic and coping skills, and aids in their integration into student life and the university environment, providing instruction on learning styles, essay-writing and reading literary texts
