    First Year Academic Transition Support

    Navigating new experiences can be a challenge, especially when you're attending university - there are so many unknowns and so much to learn. Let LAUNCH, utmONE, and the Institute for the Study of University Pedagogy's First-Year Foundational courses be your guide!

    Close up wide shot of 3 students facing each other and smiling.


    Through interactive weekly sessions, you will have the opportunity to learn from an academically successful upper-year student mentor about the many aspects of being a UTM student. You will build academic skills, discover UTM resources, and even have the opportunity to meet with your mentor one-on-one, all while building meaningful friendship with students in your area of study. Successful completers will receive a notation on your Co-Curricular Record.

    Visit the LAUNCH web page for more information and enrol in your LAUNCH stream through ACORN on your enrolment date.

    utmONE First-Year Transition Courses

    Build a strong academic foundation that will support your success in first-year through to graduation. Taught by professors with a strong background in teaching learning strategies and academic skills, utmONE courses are for-credit first-year courses designed to help you transition to university. UtmONE courses offer a supportive and engaging learning environment; sections are smaller than typical first-year courses so you’ll have more opportunity to interact with your fellow classmates, teaching assistant and professor. UtmONE courses are open to students in all disciplines and the credit received can count toward the distribution credits required to graduate.

    Visit the utmONE web page for more information, student testimonials and enroll in a utmONE course through ACORN on your enrolment date.

    Next Steps: After You Enrol in Courses

    Becoming a registered student means you have enrolled in courses AND paid the minimum tuition amount of your fees (or officially deferred them). Your fees will be posted to your invoice on ACORN in mid-July.

    To avoid being removed from your enrolled courses, make the Minimum Payment to Register as indicated on your financial account in ACORN – or defer your fees (if applicable) – by the published deadlines. More information about fee payment and fee deferrals on the Fees & Financial Aid page.
