FITA application form

Thank you for your interest in FITA. To obtain an intake interview, please complete the following application form.

Within the program, students participate in a psychological assessment which evaluates their personal adjustment, personality, study habits and academic achievement. The assessment also screens for mental health concerns. Students are provided with a feedback session to review the results of the assessment and to develop a recommended plan of action. Subsequently, 12 weekly one-on-one, 1-hour meetings with a counsellor commence.

If you are ready to make positive changes, we can help you realize your potential and build a plan that will contribute to your success.

A 12-week plan for success

Every week or other week for 12 sessions, you will meet one-on-one with your FITA Counsellor. After helping you identify your particular strengths and challenges, you will work through a plan of action specifically designed for you.
