An academic success pathway was developed for students that have been suspended from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT). These students will be given the opportunity to enter a Durham College (DC) program that will address academic success related deficiencies. The students will undergo an assessment process to identify their specific needs and will have access to academic advisors at both institutions for guidance. Upon successfully completing the program, the student returns to University with a position reserved in their program of study allowing for a semester reduction in the time lost due to suspension. The proposed pathway is done in such a way that successful students will be eligible to earn a general arts and science certificate concurrently with the continuation of their University degree.
