UWRF Pathways Program

The UWRF Pathways Program is designed to support first-year students for whom English is not their first language. The program assists students as they adjust to university academic expectations, while taking into consideration their English language proficiencies. In this two-semester program, students take courses that count toward graduation requirements in order to stay on-track to graduate on time. Collaborating instructors deliver a high level of support to help ensure student success.
