Are you a new mature or transfer student at the University of Toronto? Do you have questions about U of T culture, U of T services or U of T academic life?

You're invited to our Mature & Transfer Student Welcome! Meet other new incoming mature and transfer students, ask questions pertinent to you and connect with helpful on-campus resources.

Whether you are transferring from another post-secondary institution or are continuing your educational journey after a few (or many) years, we strongly suggest you attend one of the two sessions offered this year. Our hope is that you will feel confident, informed and equipped for your new journey here at the University of Toronto!

Overview

The Mature & Transfer Student Welcome is an orientation event geared toward the needs of mature and transfer students. Whether you are transferring from another school, have been out of school for at least a year, or both, this event is for you!

There are morning and afternoon sessions available. During these sessions, we will provide you with all the information you need to successfully navigate your university experience and find community at U of T. If you are seeking resources for family care, financial aid, accessibility, or just want to know more about U of T culture, we have you covered. Join us for a session filled with food, fun and all the resources to make your time here at U of T meaningful.

The Mature & Transfer Student Welcome will be hosted twice this year:

  • Tuesday, September 3, 2019 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
