Transition Day is an opportunity to learn about starting university for students with disabilities. Join us to learn about academic accommodations and how they are implemented, the support services that are available to students, the assessment process and common transition challenges students face.
Transition Day includes sessions for high school educators and community partners who work with students with disabilities.
You may also consider the Moving Forward Summer Transition program.
Prospective and incoming students with disabilities and their families are eligible to attend. High school educators, guidance counsellors and community partners who support students with disabilities are also welcome.
How The Program Works
This year’s Transition Day will involve an afternoon of informative sessions about registering with Accessibility Services, the transition to university and strategies in a hybrid learning environment. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from a student panel, accessibility advisors and learning strategists.
Watch videos from previous Transition Days to help prepare you for the day:
- introduction to Accessibility Services and accommodations
- university learning and preparation
- university life and resources

Transition Day 2024 will be a hybrid event on May 1 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
