Fall 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.

Orientation

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.

Find Future Ready Orientation in your MyCanvas dashboard.

*Note: This does not include students enrolled in 284 - Community Integration through Co-operative Education (CICE). CICE students will be contacted by the program directly.

Re-Orientation

For returning students

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

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 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.
