CME*1100 Orientation to BComm F (2-0) [0.00]

Students will be introduced to the expectations and policies associated with being a member of an academic community (rights, responsibilities, standards) and provided with an overview of the academic opportunities associated with the BComm program at the University of Guelph. Academic supports, resources and services available to students and the availability of non-academic opportunities to develop business related skills will also be explored. A grade notation of P or F (pass/fail) will be assigned upon completion of the course.
