Tools and resources for new and current students to prepare for learning and life at Mohawk.
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.

For new students
All new students will be automatically enrolled in Mohawk’s Future Ready Orientation course on MyCanvas, Mohawk’s learning management system.
Designed to be completed at your own pace, this course will help student prepare for the semester ahead.
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.
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 5 winners every week for the first four weeks of classes, and one grand prize winner in the beginning of June. 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.
The following events and programs are offered in real-time in a virtual space to further support new students’ transition to the Winter semester at Mohawk College.
Use the links below to learn more and register.
Get connected with an upper-year student who can support your transition to college life and introduce you to other new students. Plus, get access to virtual social and transition events in your first semester.
Spaces are limited so we encourage you to apply soon. The program runs through the Winter semester.
Program & Career Launch
At Mohawk, your Academic Orientation is called Program & Career Launch. This is your opportunity to meet faculty virtually and learn more about your program and the career path ahead of you.
Most Spring 2021 Launches will take place on Monday, May 10, 2021. Specific details about your program's orientation can be found in the Future Ready Orientation course.
