Summer Transition Program

Summer Transition Program 2016


Student Accessibility Services invites incoming students with documented disabilities to attend the Summer Transition Program. Students who have previously attended these workshops feel better prepared and are more successful in those first few months of university.

In addition to providing an opportunity to meet other new students, this program will help you: 

  • Understand the real differences between high school and university.
  • Learn about self-advocacy and how to use your strengths.
  • Get your campus ID.
  • Learn to use software you will use every day.
  • Learn proven strategies to make the most of your university experience.
  • Meet key staff who can provide academic and learning support.
  • Become familiar with the campus. 
  • Make new friends and have lots of fun.


  • Date: Tuesday, August 20 to Thursday, August 22, 2019
