Interim Aboriginal University
Preparation Program
Walk the Path with us at SFU

Are You...

  • A high school graduate?
  • Considering going to university, but want to test it first?
  • Someone who has not done math or has not written something in quite some time?
  • Wanting to connect with a cohort group of Aboriginal students in a smaller, safe, and supportive environment
  • Looking to open doors to more learning and working opportunities?

SFU's Interim Aboriginal University Preparation Program

We welcome First Nations, Métis and Inuit students to a university learning environment that affirms and integrates Indigenous knowledge and perspectives. You will join a cohort of like-minded Aboriginal students and explore university together with Elders, mentors and teachers while taking courses which can transfer into first year university or college.

Where does the IAUPP Path Lead You?

SFU’s IAUPP helps you pave the way for a successful transition to undergraduate studies. Our program offers first-year academic credit courses that integrate humanities and social sciences with Indigenous perspectives. We also offer literacy and quantitative classes (non-academic credit) that will build your confidence. Upon successful completion, you will be granted admission to SFU.

You will gain:

  • A solid foundation of academic and personal success
  • Support from tutors, academic advisors and program staff
  • Academic units towards your undergraduate degree
  • Admission to SFU and a paid internship program (upon successful completion of the program, conditions apply)
