Summer Orientation

Let's Get You Ready to Start this Fall!

Summer Orientation allows students coming from high school, mature, and transfer students to have the launch that they need to be ready for September. Learn about registering for courses and other important topics before beginning in the fall.

Summer Orientation is open to all new students and provides opportunities for students and their parents/supporters to learn more about the campus, services, and resources available during their time at Trent University Durham GTA. The main focus of the Summer Orientation is to assist students with course registration for the upcoming year with the help of academic advisors. Some other topics that will be covered include academics, involvement opportunities, campus services, student life, parent information, and money matters.
