YU Start


The YU START New Student Transition Program is a collaborative program designed to support new students during the period of transition to university (pre-matriculation -- from the time of accepting an offer of admission to the first academic experience). In addition to the centralized coordination of communications to incoming students, YU START includes three main components. These components are: 1) first year course selection tutorial & online enrolment, 2) Online Learning Communities, anchored by weekly themes and related content to generate small group discussion; and, 3) Making Connections, the in-person ‘academic orientation’ for one day on-campus.
