Information for First Year Students

Welcome to the Bachelor of Arts and Science Program!

The University of Guelph has assembled a Registration Guide for New Students which covers all of the important topics for new students. We very strongly recommend checking it out! It's a comprehensive guide, so you don't need to read all of it at once - think of it more as a reference to visit during the summer months leading up to your time in the BAS. It covers admission, program information, finances, living in residence, where to go for help, and more.

The BAS website also contains many other resources for students of all years. Click here to browse through our academic resources and services, or click here to find other non-academic services and resources for students.


Course Selection & BAS-Specific Stuff

Almost everything in the guide applies to all undergraduate students, but a few things - such as which courses you should pick - are specific to your program. They've created a guide specifically for BAS students regarding course selection, but we still strongly recommend checking our own guide for first-year course selection as well.


Important Information for Student Accessibility

Our Student Accessibility Services (SAS) help to make the University of Guelph an accessible and barrier-free campuses, and help first year students who are registered with them with the transition into university. To find out more about their transition programming  click here!. If you think you require the support of SAS through your studies you should contact them to inquire on how to gain more information, and to register with the SAS before you start attending classes!
