You're In!

Starting at U of T Scarborough in September 2024?

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 review the following:

  • Course Selection Module will be made available to you that will help to understand how to choose courses.
  • Course Planner will be made available to you. When it is time to attend in person programming bring a hardcopy (or save an electronic copy) to have it double-checked by an Academic & Learning Strategist at Get Started.
  • Transfer Credit Module if you are expecting high school or post-secondary transfer credits.
  • Check out the Frequently Asked Questions and Glossary for more information.

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.

Get Started Online (Virtual sessions via Zoom)

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.
