Transitioning from High-School to University Life?

Get a head start on your new academic career and life on campus with the Laurentian Initiative for Transition (LIFT).

For students with learning disabilities transitioning from high school or college to university, we offer the LIFT program. This FREE program takes place on campus the week before classes begin. You learn study skills, experience mock lectures by professors, adjust to campus life, receive training on assistive technology and you get to move in a week early!
