Standing true to our beliefs as First Peoples and guided by our cultural teachings, the Aboriginal Student Services Centre (ASSC) provides an environment of empowerment for First Nations, Métis, and Inuit leaders to achieve personal and academic growth.
Our vision is to demonstrate our commitment to the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit student community on campus and provide services that reflect this responsibility. ASSC will continue to honour the Indigenous worldview of education as a continuous ceremony of learning by respecting and supporting the voices and spirit of our student community at the University of Alberta.
The Transition Year Program (TYP) is a University access program for Aboriginal students who may not be prepared to enter a faculty through the regular admissions route. Learn more
