Orientation Programs



Orientation programs at UOIT support the successful transition of students into the university. These programs aim to welcome first-year students and their families to our community before classes start in September.

Orientation at UOIT is comprised of three main programs:  iBegin, Smart Start and Ignite.

iBegin is designed to promote your personal success at university and takes place in late July. Parents and families will also have the opportunity to learn about your experience and how to best support your success.

Smart Start has faculty-specific sessions designed to give you a head start in your academics and takes place throughout August.

Ignite is designed to orient and prepare you for success in your first year.  It takes place on September 5 and 6.

Orientation strives to make each new student at UOIT feel welcomed to their new community and encourages them to be fully prepared for a positive start to their university career.
