Starting at U of T Scarborough in September 2023?
Your academic Journey at U of T Scarborough begins with Get Started! Hosted by the Academic Advising & Career Centre, Get Started is an interactive academic orientation designed to support your transition from high school to university.
- Get help choosing your first-year courses from Academic & Learning Strategists and receive answers to your questions. (i.e. What are breadth requirements? Or how do I know which courses I can take?)
- Connect with First Year Peers who are excited to share their experiences with you and meet fellow students.
- Explore all the resources U of T Scarborough has to offer!
Please note, although this orientation is offered in both virtual and in-person formats, it is highly encouraged that students attend in-person if they have the option.
Before attending Get Started
Prior to attending Get started in-person/virtual session, you are required to:
- Watch the Course Selection Module as this will help you understand how to choose courses.
- Complete the Course Planner and bring a hardcopy (or save an electronic copy) to have it double-checked by an Academic & Learning Strategist at Get Started.
- If you are applying for transfer credits, review the Transfer Credits module. If you would like to attend a specific support session geared towards Transfer Credit students, please register here for our in-person Transfer Credit Support Session where Academic Advisors will be waiting to help answer your questions. This specific session will be held on Thursday July 6, 3PM - 4:30PM in computer lab BV498.
These modules and the Course Planner will be available come mid May.
Get Started On Campus (In-person sessions)
A First Year Peer will lead small groups, divided by degree type, through the course selection process and answer questions on your transition in the fall. This highly interactive and engaging session includes time in computer labs to add your courses into ACORN. An Academic &Learning Strategist will also share tips to ensure you have your schedule properly set up for the fall and winter semesters.

An Academic & Learning Strategist will share tips and answer questions to assist you with your course selection.
Get Started Online does not mimic the Get Started On Campus. Although we try our best to support students in the same way in a virtual format, Get Started On Campus provides students with additional elements that cannot be supported online, like heading to computer labs for course selection supports, that can help better prepare students.
