Welcome to the First Nations' Transition Program
The First Nations’ Transition Program (FNTP) is a first-year credit program that provides Indigenous students who are not fully admissable to the University of Lethbridge an opportunity to enter into, and succeed at, university. Our program provides a solid foundation of core skills in a supportive cohort environment that attends to Aboriginal Ways of Knowing and Learning. The program also provides cultural and peer support, advising, and academic skills development to create a positive first-year experience that positions students for success in further undergraduate studies.
To be eligible for admission to the FNTP program, applicants must have attended high school until grade twelve or have been out of high school for at least one year, and at a minimum, hold credit for specific Alberta high school courses or their equivalents. Click below for details.
