Summer Orientation Days

Brescia UC

Brescia’s Summer Orientation Days (SOD) will prepare you for the transition from high school to university. We want to help you and your parents get a better sense of the changes, challenges, and bold new experiences that await you in September.

At your SOD, you will have the chance to learn about academic choices, financial aid, select your courses with an Academic Advisor, and map out your timetable. You will also register for some of your courses, have the option of taking a campus tour, and meet some current Brescia students.

If you are unable to attend a SOD, please contact for assistance choosing courses and creating your timetable. Out of province and international students will complete a phone or Skype advising session; your Admissions Officer will be in touch with you directly.

Summer Transition in Education Planning for Students (STEPS)

Western’s Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) in Western’s Student Development Centre (SDC) will offer a STEPS presentation for students at 1:00pm on each session day. Brescia students who are interested in attending a STEPS session are encouraged to register for a morning SOD at Brescia, followed by an afternoon STEPS session at Western.
