Mature and Transfer Student Summer Orientations

Each year, the Student Success Centre (with the support of the Society of Mature Students), holds a number of orientations for new and incoming students. At these orientations, we will highlight programs and services on campus, provide assistance with course selection and registration, and complete a brief campus tour. If you are interested, please join the SMS Facebook Group for updates or visit under the events tab.

Additionally, students are welcome to attend Summer Academic Orientation (SAO). New students can attend our in-person program or book a phone/e-advising appointment to answer questions and highlight important resources. For more information, please visit our SAO page
