Moving Forward is a summer transition program specifically designed for new, incoming students who self-identify as having disabilities and who are entering any level of post-secondary education at any institution. This program is also for students who have not yet attended a Moving Forward orientation event.

This program supports students by:

  • helping you navigate academic accommodations at the post-secondary level
  • introducing you to online, hybrid, and in-person learning, lectures and note-taking
  • giving you strategies for managing life in and out of the classroom (including tips for virtual and hybrid learning)
  • teaching you university-level academic learning strategies and skills
  • connecting you with a community of peers and Accessibility Services staff
  • helping you transition to the next stage of your academic career

Join us for a series of workshops, panels and strategy sessions to get familiar with Accessibility Services and accommodations, and learn tips to prepare you for post-secondary learning!

Our graduate specific sessions are scheduled for the following dates:
