What is the Easy Start Transition Program?

 

The Easy Start Transition Program for students with disabilities aims to provide new students with resources and information to assist in transitioning to post-secondary studies at Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber. 

The program includes interactive opportunities to explore Humber and Guelph-Humber's services and learn about accessing academic accommodations.  Students will also have the opportunity to meet with returning students registered with Accessible Learning Services.
