The Fresh Start program is part of Ryerson's overall support strategy for students in academic jeopardy. The Fresh Start program is a two-part program designed to assist students in resuming their studies.
In part one, students are required to take the "Fresh Start Strategies," course. Additionally, students may take up to two credit courses. Those courses are to be chosen in conjunction with a student's RTW program advisor.
In part two, students may take up to four credit courses, again selected after discussion with a RTW program advisor. Minimum grades may be specified for the credit courses; the Fresh Start Strategies course is graded as a Pass/Fail.
