Orientation is available to your student (and you!)
If you're planning to be in Halifax over the summer, Dal offers a one-day summer orientation program
(July 15 or July 28) for new students and their families and friends
to help them Start on Track
in their first year at Dal. New students will also be enrolled in an online course, Start on Track - Online
, where they are encouraged to complete eight different modules on the topics of finances, academic preparation, health, and more.
In September, your student will be able to attend a number of in-person orientation and welcome sessions hosted by the Dalhousie Student Union, Student Affairs, the International Centre, Indigenous Student Centre, Black Student Advising Centre, and Advising and Access Services, all of which are aimed at helping ensure their first year at Dalhousie is successful. Keep an eye out for details on dal.ca/firstyear
TIP: If you're looking for a place to stay in Nova Scotia, Dalhousie's residences are open as summer accommodations until August 6 in Truro and August 18 in Halifax.
