Returning students are encouraged to enroll in Mohawk’s Future Ready Re-Orientation course in MyCanvas, Mohawk’s learning management system.

Earn While You Learn

As you complete Future Ready Orientation or Re-Orientation, you will have the opportunity to earn badges and receive credit on your Co-Curricular Record! For each badge you register, you will be entered into a draw to win multiple prizes.

The Student Life team will draw 10 winners every week for the month of September. Prizes include Campus Store gift cards ranging from $50-$500.

The time commitment for this course will vary per student and per topic, but generally, each badge will take 10-20 minutes to complete.
