College Students in Transition

Student Reading in classroomThe Transition Program is a mentoring system, conducted by the Department of Learning Services, designed to assist new university students in the successful transition from high school to university academics.

Staff in the Admissions Office select applicants to the Mount whom they feel would benefit from the extra support provided by this program.

How it Works

The goal of the Transition Program is for students to become confident, successful, college students. Each undergraduate student in this program will be assigned a graduate student who will meet with the transition student on a weekly basis, working on study skills as well as organizational and time management skills, while also being a personal advocate and guide for the student's first year at the Mount.

Beyond these individual appointments, students are encouraged to attend Writing Center appointments and Peer Tutoring appointments as needed. Leaning Services also works closely with Veritas Program professors/academic advisors for the duration of the student's first year.
