B.19.1.2 ASAP Program

First Nations, Metis and Inuit students are welcomed to a learning environment that integrates Indigenous knowledge and worldviews, while taking university courses as a cohort in Open Studies.

Students enrolled in the Aboriginal Student Access Program take up to four (3-unit) university courses per semester, including specified core courses taken with other students in the ASAP cohort. Students register in a combination of ASAP core course requirements and electives related to their desired academic program. Upgrading courses may be taken concurrently with university courses, as needed. Students are provided with cultural support through the Native Centre and have access to faculty program advisors for advice regarding course electives in the faculty they wish to enter. Students are required to attend weekly tutorials and workshops in the Native Centre. These study groups will enhance academic skills and knowledge, build positive study habits, and will allow students to explore university study with Elders, mentors and peers.

For details on the ASAP admission requirements, see section A.8.4 Aboriginal Student Access Program.
