AC Start is “pre-orientation” – it’s where students get organized before AC Day 1 on Tuesday, September 5. (Please note, AC Start is for Ottawa campus only.) The key information for staff and faculty to know is that AC Start sessions are divided by School and run 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Student Commons on their selected dates (plus a General Session, which runs 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on August 21). 

At AC Start, students will:
  • Familiarize themselves with the online tools to access timetables, grades, and email
  • Learn about eTexts and how to use them
  • Take a campus tour
  • Check out info booths at the College Trade Show
  • Get their AC Card/U-Pass (student ID)

For the dates for all School sessions, view the AC Start section of the Orientation website.

Learn about the difference between AC Start and AC Day 1, and why it’s important for students to attend both.
