Summer Transition


The Access and Support Centre (ASC) has teamed up with Durham College’s (DC) first-year orientation program called Start Strong. At Start Strong, you will familiarize yourself with the campus, gather vital information about how to succeed as a college student, begin to form your DC support network by connecting with students and staff and complete your college business.  The ASC will offer workshops on self-advocacy and assistive technology.  

When can you attend?

Registration and further information about the Start Strong program can be found on the Orientation website.

How do you register?

To register for Start Strong, please click the DC Applicant Tab on MyCampus and select Start Strong Registration under Helpful Links on the right-hand side of the page.

Students who require any accessibility accommodations during the transition program should notify the ASC as early as possible. Accommodations may take some time to arrange (e.g., ASL interpreting) so early contact is encouraged.
