What to Expect in College 1

Why Take College 1?

  • By taking College 1 along with the other Pathways requirements, you are able to stay in the Pathways program and receive important benefits including priority registration and access to Pathways resources.  

  • College 1 students also report increased confidence in many important skills including reading, research, time-management, goal-setting and working with others.
