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.
