Eagle Connect; Your New Student Community

Prepare for the start of your first year at UTM with Eagle Connect. This initiative is available to all new UTM students; you will: 

  • Be placed in a summer community (or Eagle Squad), in which you will be given an upper-year mentor/guide to assist you through the summer months
  • Connect with other new students as you transition into university together
  • Receive a weekly interactive newsletter highlighting due dates, deadlines and giving you useful information to ensure you are ready for the new year and the start of your UTM experience
  • Participate in exciting weekly online learning sessions, led and designed by your community mentor/guide, to make sure you are fully equipped and ready to go
  • Be able to ask questions! Your upper-year guide and mentor is ready and available. Just email them, and they will get back to you with everything they can, as well as personal insights and experiences.

All new students will be placed into Squad automatically, with a Student Guide and Mentor in June.

Online Course Registration Sessions 

Join us online to learn everything you need to know about your U of T degree as we guide you through the steps for course enrolment with a live demonstration of resourceful websites. You can also ask questions live!

After you attend the Course Selection Walkthrough webinar, you may have more questions, like what courses to choose. This interactive workshop will give you an opportunity to ask your academic advisors any questions you might have!

After you've added your courses (or most of them!), you may have additional or different kinds of questions. Register for a check-in session, where we will help you finalize your timetable. Spaces are limited.

Designed for students who understand the basics of course enrolment and program planning, these online chats are offered as additional opportunities to ask questions directly of our Academic Advisors.

Hosted by our Financial Aid staff, we'll discuss money matters including budgeting, scholarships and financial aid. We'll also highlight payment options and deadlines.
