Your success matters here!

Student success at Capilano University comes down to two things. First, we want our students to be successful when they're here learning and studying. And second, we want our graduates to be successful when they leave CapU and embark on their careers.

Providing a space for our students that gives them the tools and resources they need to succeed is why we created the CapU Centre for Student Success (CCSS). The CCSS serves as a hub for our students where they can collaborate, study and prepare for their futures.

Paul Dangerfield, President

The CapU Centre for Student Success (CCSS) is an initiative in partnership with Library Services and other learning-focused student services, including the Mathematics Learning Centre, Writing Centre, Centre for International Experience and English Language Support. This is achieved through the provision of co-located and coordinated student-centered learning supports that are convenient to access and support a variety of learning styles.

The CCSS applies best practices of a traditional learning commons while also adding other support programs into one central location at the heart of CapU's campus.

First-Year Seminars

The courses are ideal for students to connect with one another and build their academic skills with the support of a faculty member, who is passionate about the topic. These unique three-credit seminars can be used to meet Cap Core requirements.
