Academic Recovery Program

The Academic Recovery Program is an opportunity for students to strengthen their academic skills and evaluate their education, career direction, and personal goals. In the ARP students take credit courses while attending academic skill-building workshops, coaching sessions, and homework sessions guided by experienced tutors. If you have difficulty writing essays, studying for exams, taking notes, managing time, or dealing with stress, the ARP can help!

Program Eligibility

The ARP aims to assist anyone who needs extra support at the University of Regina. However, students who have been placed on Academic Probation are strongly encouraged to apply.
