New Students

Will there be orientation events for new students?

Yes! York’s Orientation will begin Tuesday, September 5, 2020 with a variety of fun activities to help you make some new friends and learn more about your program and York. As part of the week, you’ll want to be sure to attend your mandatory Academic Orientation September 8. Visit the Orientation 2020 website for your Orientation Resource Guide, and check back regularly for updates on events as they are confirmed.

Will I be able to participate in the YU START program?

All first-year students will have access to YU START to learn how to enrol in courses, discover useful tips and resources to help with your first year at York and register for Orientation activities. Once you’ve accepted your offer to York, be sure to look out for your email that talks about next steps.

What will my first day of classes look like with courses being online and/or remote this fall?

YU START’s York 101 module includes a series of videos designed to help you prepare for your first week of classes, learn how to navigate Moodle and Zoom, and provide you with online learning supports. Your course syllabus should provide you with information about how to log in to and begin your classes.
