Every school of study provides a mentor to help students achieve academic success. We also have useful seminars on learning skills, time management, career development, and taking the stress out of the transition to College, both for recent high school grads and mature learners returning to school.
We’re here to help you meet your academic goals, with one-on-one peer support in a positive environment that promotes learning independence. You will be matched with a successful upper-year tutor who can help you get a better understanding of the course material. Our Academic Skills Centre also offers drop-in support with writing, mathematics and computers to help you succeed in any course throughout your time at Loyalist.
Our Counselling Office has compiled a wealth of information on how to get on top of your studies, and stay there. We’re here to help support your success.
Counselling services are available to help students deal with personal issues such as anxiety, depression, overwhelming stress, substance use or addiction, sexual or other assault, abuse, and mental or emotional health concerns. We can also assist with referrals to external and specialized community agencies. Sessions are absolutely confidential, free, and focused on finding your strengths and solutions to your challenges.
Student academic success, just as success in the working world, is dependent on balancing physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Mind and Wellness Services can provide assessments, education and referrals to support you in maintaining this balance.
The International Centre provides assistance to international students and students who are new to Canada in adapting to college life socially, academically, and culturally. We provide information regarding immigration and settlement issues as well as offering support to students whose first language is not English.
Indigenous students at Loyalist are supported in realizing their full academic and personal potential, and encouraged to express and develop their Indigenous identity through cultural activities in a friendly environment. The Indigenous Resource Centre is holistic in approach and acts as a liaison between College administration, Indigenous communities and government agencies.
A First Generation student is the first in their family (besides a sibling) to attend college. While that can have some unique challenges, it’s also worth celebrating! Loyalist College offers support services, bursaries, peer mentoring, e-mentoring, workshops and teambuilding activities to support our First Generation students.
