Indigenous Student Success Cohort (ISSC)


The Indigenous Student Success Cohort (ISSC) is uniquely designed to help First Nations, Inuit and M├ętis students who are returning to university after an absence or who may not be able to meet all of the requirements for general admission to the U of L make a smooth transition to university life. Successful completion of ISSC will allow you to enter into most U of L programs.

This is an eight-month (two-semester) program which runs September to April that will transition you into most programs at the University of Lethbridge.

Course offerings vary year to year and include:

  • Anthropology
  • Art
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Science
  • Environmental science
  • Health Sciences
  • Indigenous Studies
  • Interdisciplinary Studies
  • Library science
  • Mathematics
  • Writing

The U of L is very welcoming and the First Nations' Transition Program is incredibly supportive. When I graduate, I want to combine my art and passion for culture in a career working with FNMI youth.
