Kick Start

At this time, we intend to hold in-person Kick Start activities in July 2021 before course selection. Please note, the unpredictability of the COVID-19 situation may necessitate altering the delivery of this programming. The University of Guelph-Humber will continue to follow the direction of the Ontario Government and local public health officials to ensure we are complying with all protocols. More information will be shared with new students in the coming months.

As part of our First Year Experience (FYE) program, Kick Start is designed to help with the transition from secondary to post-secondary education. Through live webinars and information sessions, new students and their family members & supporters receive information and answers to their questions.


Kick Start webinars are free to attend. Please note that some webinars are only for new students, others are for family members & supporters, and some are open to both audiences.
