From academic help and advice to personal support, everything’s in place to help Indigenous students succeed at CapU.

First Nations Student Services

There are direct services and support for students of First Nations, Inuit and Métis ancestry. These include:

  • help with choosing courses and registering at CapU
  • contact with First Nations Band education officers and CapU instructors
  • advising on special programs, and
  • advice and help with personal, health and school-based issues.

This assistance is available to students at our North Vancouver and Sechelt campuses. 

Student Success workshops

Every term we hold workshops to help you prepare and cope with university life.  The workshops take place in the Kéxwusm-áyakn Student Centre. We cover tips and strategies on how to:

  • get ready to learn
  • keep focused
  • prepare for exams
  • and much more. 


You can also drop by the Centre for daily drop-in math help.

Our tutors are instructors from the Math Learning Centre and the Writing Centre.

The schedule for math and writing help is posted at the beginning of each term. Check back later for the Fall 2018 schedule.

Indigenous Mentorship Program

Looking for help and advice from someone who’s been in your shoes? You can partner with a senior Indigenous CapU student for peer mentorship. They’ll help you handle the transition into university life.
