Fresh Start Program
Fresh Start is a two-term Student Success program designed to assist students in resuming their undergraduate studies. Students who have been assigned an RTW academic standing might be able to participate in the Fresh Start program after a one-term suspension period. Students may request to enter Fresh Start to continue their studies in their current program or request a transfer to another program.
Please note: Not all programs accept Fresh Start transfers.
Before proceeding, the reinstatement process is only valid if your RTW standing is be between 12 months (three terms) and 24 months (six terms) after assignment.
To begin, please complete these steps:
Please note: Reinstatement into your program is considered based on: past academic performance, space availability and competition. It is not guaranteed. You will be contacted by email by a program advisor once your application has been reviewed. The timeframe for application review varies by program. If you have any questions, please contact your Academic Program Advisor.
Students who are approved for reinstatement, will resume their studies on probation. They will be required to sign a Probationary Contract that outlines their courses and recommended support services.
Successful completion of a Probationary Contract will allow a student to continue on Probation (or Clear standing if a cumulative GPA of 1.67 or higher is achieved).
Students who have been denied reinstatement to their program twice may not reapply for reinstatement to that program. In this case, students will be formally withdrawn from their program of study.
If you have been assigned an RTW academic standing and wish to be considered for readmission into your program after 24 months (six terms) have elapsed, please apply for readmission using a TMU Application.
Please note: Applications will be considered based on past academic performance, space availability and competition, as well as admission deadline dates and procedures determined by Undergraduate Admissions. It is not guaranteed.
