Are you a student in LA&PS who has received a “Required to Withdraw” decision? Do you want to learn essential skills for university success and continue in your degree program during the Fall/Winter academic year? If so, you are invited to apply to take FND 1000 (3.0): Fundamentals of Learning.
For Fall 2023, students who have been placed on Academic Warning are also invited to apply to take the Fundamentals of Learning course.
How do I apply?
Submit an online application form. You should apply as soon as possible. We will be considering applications for the Fall term up to mid-August.
Prepare for success! If accepted into the FND 1000 course, you can expect to learn key skills that will advance your academic goals.
Is Fundamentals of Learning for you?
The course is intended specifically for students who have received a “Required to Withdraw” decision from the University due to a low grade point average (GPA), and whose past performance does not adequately reflect their academic ability.
This course is most appropriate for you if you are prepared to commit to developing stronger learning skills and self-regulation strategies. It may not be appropriate if your past performance is the result of unfortunate personal crisis or illness.
If your academic difficulties arose in the context of a personal crisis or illness, please refer to the Petitions webpage.
Please reflect on your current situation and determine if you are truly committed to participating fully and to applying key skills and to practicing new behaviours.
The Fundamentals of Learning course is designed to teach you key academic skills and self-regulation strategies to manage your time, energy and focus. You will be coached by your instructors to master these skills and strategies, and to apply them in your other courses to help you raise your GPA.
Connect with our expert advisors to figure out the courses and grades you need to meet your degree requirements. We strongly encourage all new students to get an appointment when enrolling.
