Student Learning and Transitions

Student Learning and Transitions (SLT) is a group of services and programs aimed at helping students engage in their academic studies and student life at Nipissing University. We teach essential academic skills and study techniques that help students more effectively express their intelligence, apply their knowledge and communicate their ideas. We facilitate activities and programs to build a peer support network, an engaged Laker community, and support students throughout their multiple transitions in, through, and out of their academic careers.

What Can SLT do for you?

Part of being a successful student involves getting help and guidance along the way. SLT is precisely the place for this -- a group of people whose job it is to help you -- to build your academic skills, increase your confidence in the work you do, contribute to the improvement of your community, develop your leadership skills, and to make friends and connections on campus.

Programs Offered by Student Learning and Transitions:

♦ Academic Writing Support 

♦ Math and Science Support 

♦ Academic Success Planning   

♦ Peer Tutoring

♦ Transition Support

♦ Record of Student Development (RSD)

♦ Academic Skills Support
