Transition Program

Academic Success

Proactive retention strategies play an important role in helping you build your skills for success in a demanding engineering curriculum. During Early Intervention, if you are failing core courses at the semester's mid-point, we will invite you to meet with an academic advisor to discuss options to help reduce the chances of academic failure and to improve your academic performance, like enrolling in the Transition Program. The Transition Program provides you with more time to adapt to the demanding university curriculum by providing you with an immediate opportunity to upgrade your academic standings and to complete missing and/or failed courses.
