Get a head start on your transition to university!

The Moving Forward Summer Transition Program is a week long orientation event for students who identify as having a disability, entering their first year at U of T. 

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 orientation week 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 some insight into the student life here at U of T!
