Orientation Programs


The university offers incoming students a variety of Orientation and first-year programs, coordinated by Student Engagement and Equity. These programs provide quality transitional experiences that support students’ potential for academic and personal success in university. 


Orientation and transition programs are available throughout the year, providing all incoming students and their families with the information and resources necessary to have a successful first year experience. Specialized programs are also offered through our various Student Life departments, including International Education, Student Learning Centre and Student Accessibility Services in order to meet the needs of the university's diverse student population. The university has three major student intakes, with specialized Orientation programs offered for each: fall intake (September), winter intake (January) and spring bridging program intake (May).
