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 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 and academic learning strategists, who are excited to share their experiences with you. (Hint: all First Year Students are assigned an Upper Year Student Mentor, so keep an eye out for email communications from them).
