MUN to launch First-Year Success Program

April 19, 2012

Memorial University will introduce this fall a 2-year pilot program for first-year students who feel they would benefit from a little extra reassurance about the transition to PSE, without missing any academic credit hours. Targeted at students with entrance averages between 70% and 75%, the First-Year Success Program will be housed in the arts faculty and is intended for first-year students who fall within this average and who are not accepted into direct-entry programs. The pilot program emerges from a MUN study that found that students whose entrance averages fall between 70% and 75% are particularly vulnerable to academic distress that could impact their entire PSE experience.
