- Small classes: Our average class size is approximately 20, and the majority of our classes have fewer than 35 students. This means professors get to know students by name, and are often able to offer one-on-one guidance.
- Academic support: Dedicated study space, peer tutors, and academic skills building offered by our Centre for Academic Development.
- Dedicated advising support and program planning: All of our students are assigned their own academic advisor for individual attention.
- Fair warning: If a student is struggling with a particular class, we have a system in place to provide an early warning that he or she may need more focused support with organization, time management, academic writing, and other academic skills
- Social support: They can also access our Campus Life and Ministry team for personal, spiritual, and social support.
- Flexible admissions and summer programs:We offer year-round admissions and summer classes students can elect to take during summer training camp.
We have Recruiters and Academic Advisors who are dedicated to guiding student athletes through the application process and success in their courses.mailTalk with a Recruiter
