Moving Forward Summer Transition Program
Get a head start on your transition to university!
The Moving Forward Summer Transition Program is for students entering their first year at U of T, who identify as having a disability.
Every student transitioning to university faces challenges, and we appreciate that as students with disabilities your transition might be impacted in different ways. We highly encourage and invite you to participate in this program to discover strategies for managing life in and out of the classroom, learn about the campus culture and structures, and gain academic skills for producing university-quality work. Most importantly, you'll meet a community of peers that you may see in your classes or at events and gain insight into the student life at U of T!
Moving Forward: Get Started Workshops
Students with a disability can attend an evening workshop with Accessibility Services to learn about navigating accommodations and the skills needed to thrive at the University of Toronto.
At these workshops you will:
- learn about services and programs on campus for students with disabilities
- learn effective study strategies and habits
- connect with other students
Moving Forward: Get Started workshops are offered to both undergraduate and graduate students on the following dates:
- Undergraduate Get Started Workshops: August 8, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
- Grad Get Started Workshops: August 15, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
