Your Pathway to University

We know that grades don’t always tell the whole story.
If you think your academic record might prevent you from studying at university, the Enriched Support Program (ESP) may be for you.  ESP is designed to help you start university now while bridging to degree admission.

This full-time program offers you the opportunity to:

  • start first-year university studies
  • earn admission to a degree program
  • build excellent academic skills and habits
  • benefit from support during your transition to university

The ESP provides structured support that helps with the transition to university level studies. As an ESP student, you can enroll in up to three first-year classes per term and have access to a network of supports.

Complete the program with the required average and you can earn admission to degree programs in:

  • The arts and social sciences
  • Business
  • Computer science
  • Engineering
  • Science

The ESP was founded to foster university access for everyone, including those from under-represented groups. As part of our commitment to a more equitable, diverse and inclusive campus community, we actively encourage applications from racialized and Indigenous students, 2SLGBTQ+ students, neurodivergent students, students with disabilities, and students from working-class backgrounds of all ethnicities.
