For Parents & Guardians

The Archway Model

Archway is designed to support all incoming first-year McMaster students as they navigate their post-secondary education during an especially challenging time due to COVID-19.

While we often see first-year students with lots of questions, as the world continues to change around us, this year may be more challenging than usual.

Archway Support Model

Our Archway coaches and mentors are paid, professional staff who are rooted in the McMaster community and know how to help your student effectively. Starting June 7, we will be reaching out to accepted first-year students to understand their goals, listen to their concerns, and begin building the connections that will support them throughout the academic year.

We are proud of the McMaster experience and the level of support we provide our students during the best of times and now we are adding this new level of personalized support to help your student have a successful first-year in 2021-2022.
