Resources for College Preparation
It’s common for students to have concerns about whether they’re prepared for their college programs.
Rest assured, colleges are accustomed to assessing incoming students and ensuring that appropriate resources are in place to support their success. However, these resources cannot wholly replace the academic knowledge expected of students entering college.
Students are encouraged to make use of the resources available to them through the school boards, the Ministry of Education and independent learning centres to proactively address any concerns about gaps in their learning in advance of entry into college.
In addition, for students already committed to a college program beginning in the fall, the following list provides information about services generally available at each college that may help fill gaps in preparedness. We encourage students to contact their college directly for detailed information.
Visit our Resources for College Preparation page for a list of resources by college.
