In order to ensure that students feel supported and ready as they make their way into and through their first year, York University has developed an award winning online New Student Transition Program called YU START! Incoming students will have access to all of the resources and information offered by the University once they accept their offer. Students are encouraged to go through the whole YU START transition program to sign up for York Orientation Day, learn about the York’s community values, their rights as new students and how to get involved; all of which are essential to a successful transition into university.

Parents and students are able to sign up for campus tours, explore ways to finance students education through OSAP or work study position, and plan for a future career all through YU START. YU START is not only a tool, but a built in community where incoming students can instantly connect with academic advisors, their future peers.
