Why Academic Monitoring?

Student Academic Success Strategies (SASS) is aware of the many challenges faced by international students who come from different education systems and may be studying in a second or third language. Academic Monitoring service has been offered to support international students and their parents in becoming familiar with Canadian academic culture and achieving academic success.

Parents' interest in student’s experience at the College or University is important.  The information that she/he shares with you about the College experience may provide some satisfaction in a job well done.  It’s important to keep in mind, however, that as a supporter you will not have access to your student’s records.  All post-secondary institutions are bound to keep its students’ records confidential under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. Colleges or Universities are not able to release any academic information to any third party without written authorization of the student; this includes students' marks and registration status.

SASS is here to ensure that new international students make a successful transition to life at College. We aim to provide students with information and link you to campus resources in order to support them in achieving your academic and personal goals.
