Orientation

At Mohawk we know that a good start leads to a strong finish, so we’ve developed a series of virtual orientation and re-orientation experiences for new and returning students to set you up for success wherever you are learning this semester.

Designed to be completed at your own pace, this course will help student prepare for the semester ahead.

Re-Orientation

For returning students

This self-paced, choose-your-own-adventure course offers confidence building tools and strategies for success to help you thrive this semester.

Re-Orientation Login

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 first month of classes. Prizes include Campus Store gift cards ranging from $50 to $500.

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

Virtual Learning Basket

Weaving together our knowledge and gifts

First Nation, Metis and Inuit (FNMI) students in all years of study are encouraged to enrol in Mohawk’s Virtual Learning Basket series on MyCanvas, Mohawk’s learning management system.

Created in collaboration with peers, alumni, Elders, Knowledge Keepers and educators, this resource will help FNMI students prepare to address physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and relational needs this semester and beyond.
