First-Year Learning Integration Program (FLIP)

Welcome all first-year Management students!

Unsure about what to expect when you arrive at U of T Scarborough? Our First-Year Learning Integration Program (FLIP) is just for you.

With a focus on Health and Wellness, Academic Success, Community Building, and Career Development, the FLIP program—available to incoming Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) students—will help you:

  • Enjoy a smooth and successful transition to university from high school
  • Introduce you to the many services, spaces, and staff across campus
  • Access academic and career development support
  • Build connections, make friends, and have fun!

How FLIP Works

  • Your FLIP experience starts with joining a group of approximately 30 first-year peers enrolled in the Management BBA program. A pair of upper-year BBA students will serve as your mentors, offering guidance and support as you navigate your first year at U of T.
  • You will attend multiple sessions covering a range of helpful topics (e.g. academic preparedness and integrity; midterm and exam preparation; wellness; career exploration; equity, diversity, and inclusion, etc.) as well as opportunities to socialize and network across the Management community.
  • You earn co-curricular credit for academic and career development milestones you achieve during first year.

FLIP is a limited-registration program with a maximum of 100 spots. We encourage you to apply early so we can guarantee your space!


Please note: All students entering a Management Co-op specialist program are automatically enrolled in the Advancing Your Career Exploration (AYCE) course which covers many of the areas described above and more; as such, priority access to FLIP is reserved for BBA students who are not enrolled in a co-op subject POSt.

There is one thing that has always been important to me: community. The FLIP program is the exact representation of this word. It not only creates opportunities for students to properly integrate into university, it also brings students from different walks of life together to create bonds that might not have been made. The FLIP program made me a more wholesome learner, a more community-oriented leader, and a more outgoing person.

One of the best decisions I made in my first year at UTSC was joining the FLIP community. Even before our classes started in September, I was so fortunate to meet great people through FLIP. I was quite anxious about making friends prior to the start of university, but rest assured, FLIP took care of that. FLIP made my first-year experience incredibly smooth, and I would recommend it to every incoming Management student at UTSC.
