UNB Saint John's Students Transitioning for Academic Readiness (STAR) is a year-long program for students who want to attend university but might not meet entrance requirements.

Benefits

The STAR program provides students with an introduction to university-level studies while also offering help with effective study and classroom skills as well as test taking. The STAR program is based on UNB Saint John's Certificate in General Studies.

How it works

STAR students will take up to six courses (two required and four possible electives) throughout the year. The required courses have been chosen to help create a solid foundation as you being your studies. The courses include:

  • UNI 1003: Everything I need to know about University
  • HUM 1021: Effective writing

Both are designed to provide you with the tools to help you succeed in your educational goals! Students will also have regular check-ins with campus experts to help with study and classroom skills and more to ensure they're as successful as possible in their studies. Students are also paired with peer mentors who will lend support throughout the year.
