Indigenous Student Success Certificate


Welcome to the Indigenous Student Success Certificate

The Indigenous Student Success Certificate is a first-year credit program that provides Indigenous students who are not fully admissible to the University of Lethbridge an opportunity to enter into, and succeed at, university. Our program provides a solid foundation of core skills in a supportive cohort environment that attends to Aboriginal Ways of Knowing and Learning. The program also provides cultural and peer support, advising, and academic skills development to create a positive first-year experience that positions students for success in further undergraduate studies.
