Residence Move-In and Orientation Week

Orientation Week runs for the full week starting the day after you move in, and will be full of fun events that help you get to know your campus and new classmates.
You may request to have your registration deferred for a period of one year. Typically, your deferral will be granted only if you have not undertaken academic studies at the high school, college, or university level during the deferral.
To request deferral, you must:
- Confirm your offer of admission for the term to which you were initially admitted by the deadline stated on the offer
- Submit a written request to the Registrar (Marianne Simm) no later than one month prior to the beginning of the term to which you were initially admitted
- Explain your reasons for making the request
- Summarize your plans for the deferral period
- Make a deposit of $225 no later than September 1, 2015 to hold your deferral, which will be applied as a credit to your account
You will not need to reapply for admission. Also, offers of residence and scholarship will be automatically deferred. Before your intended registration date, preferably in May, you must contact the Registrar’s office to ensure that your file is reactivated.
To submit your deferral request, mail, e-mail, or fax:
Marianne Simm, Vice-Principal, Students
