Transition to College
'Let the Journey Begin'
Monday, August 26 - Thursday, August 29, 2019
Thank you for your interest in the 2019 Transition to College Program.
July 15th is our preferred registration deadline. Applications received after July 15th will be considered based on available spaces.
The Transitions program provides incoming students with identified learning disabilities with an opportunity to "get settled in" before starting classes. This "settling in" period offers a variety of experiences for students to be better prepared for their new academic career. There is no charge for the Transition to College Program. It is absolutely FREE.
It is a requirement to meet with a counsellor to provide documentation on your disability and discuss accommodations. Please call 705-759-2554 x2703 to book an appointment. If you do not have documentation on your disability or it is more than 5 years old, a counsellor can help you explore options to complete an updated assessment. It is important that you meet with a counsellor during the summer or as early in the academic year as possible.
