Seven things to do before classes start
With September fast-approaching, check out these tips and reminders
Aug. 19, 2019
1. Pay Your Tuition
If you have not already paid tuition for the fall semester, remember that fees are due in full on Tuesday, Sept. 3. Full tuition is always due on or before the first day of classes. Hundreds of scholarships and bursaries are available to students who need financial support.
2. Learn How to Get Around
Campus parking lots are always busiest during the first few weeks of the semester. To avoid the congestion, map your route through available transit options such as public transportation, campus shuttle bus or find a carpool match using this online tool. Students who carpool will have access to designated carpool parking spots on campus. Once you have a carpool match, email the OneCard office with “carpool” in the subject line to sign up.
3. Register for Orientation
Many events take place across Seneca’s main campuses for Orientation. Some activities may require online registration but most are drop-in so students can casually attend events that suit their schedule. More information about registering for events and schedules can be found online.
4. Set up Your Seneca Email
Setting up your Seneca email is important so that you can stay up to date on campus activities and classes. Seneca professors, student advisers and service areas will be reaching out to you through this email address. Details on how to set it up as well as log in to My.Seneca can be found in this three-minute video below.
5. Upload a Selfie for Your Student ID
Your OneCard is your student ID that you can use to buy food on campus, print at Seneca Libraries, shop the Bookstore and much more. Every OneCard requires a photo. Follow these instructions to upload a selfie for yours and skip waiting in line.
6. Download Seneca's Apps
Download the Seneca’s App Suite to get email, timetable and news access on the go.
