New Student Checklist
Changes to Student Success Centre Services
Most Student Success staff will be moving to working remotely as of Monday March 23, 2020. Working remotely means staff can be contacted via email or telephone to have questions answered or to set up a remote meeting via telephone, Microsoft Teams or another mutually agreed upon means of meeting remotely.
Don't forget to check them off!
The transition to campus life can be both exciting and overwhelming. To help you get off on the right foot, we’ve compiled a few checklists!
