Course Selection Supports

Your Supports

Within the Get Started program you will have access to many Course Selection Supports, such as:

  • Course Selection Modules

  • Live Virtual Supports

  • Your First Year Peer
  • Academic Advisors

  • Discussion Boards

Be sure to check out the Course Selection Module

Within these modules you will learn about: degree requirements, resources available to help you choose your courses, how to enroll in your courses (using a student-web service called ACORN) and how to plan ahead to complete your program and degree requirements.

  • Throughout the module you will find opportunities to check your knowledge which will help you feel prepared to make informed decisions about your course selection

Note: Course Enrolment Day for first-year students begins on July 7, 2021.

Once you have finished going through the course selection module, you may still have questions about course selection and course enrolment. We are here to help!
