Alternative Admission and Transition Programs is your online partner that helps prepare you for student life. From June through to September, we will be with you every step of the way as you get ready to come to campus.

START Indigenous

START Indigenous is a 2-day program designed to help you learn more about life at U of G and the many people on campus who are here to help you succeed at university.  As part of the program, you attend sessions on academic expectations and financial management, engage with senior students and Indigenous Student Centre staff, find your classrooms and find out what you can expect during Orientation Week.

Student Accessibility Services (SAS)

START Accessible plays a critical role in helping students who use SAS services to become familiar with the campus environment and learn about supports available throughout the year. We will cover everything from classroom accommodations to exams, with lots of opportunities to make friends.

Orientation Workshop is for students who did not attend START Accessible. It is a 30-minute virtual session that happens throughout September after classes have started.


Let STARTonTrack help. Make half an hour for us and we will help you find a way to create at least that much time back in your week. Succeeding at university is about more than how well you study and how much time you put into your classes; there is a big wide world of things you need to do at university, and we can help you make it a little bit easier regardless of where you are at right now. Ninety percent of participants from previous years recommend this program, saying it helped improve their confidence and academic performance.
