International Student Centre (ISC): Orientation and Transition Services

The International Student Centre (ISC) at University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) would like to congratulate all new international students on their acceptance to UTSC. UTSC is a great place to call your university and we are glad to have you!

The ISC has planned a range of essential Orientation and Transition Services in order to ease newly admitted international students’ transition into academic and social life, and help make their journey at UTSC a fulfilling one. Registration for these events is now available online at the ISC’s new website Here is a list of the Orientation and Transition services we offer new international students:

  • Settling in the City (Attend one session; Sessions held every Wednesday & Friday from 12-3pm August 29 to September 16)

  • Welcome Booth (Monday to Friday commencing August 29 to September 16 in the Instructional Centre-Atrium from 10am to 4pm daily)

  • Jump Start Campus Tours (Attend one tour; Tours held every Tuesday and Thursday from 2-3:00pm, August 29 to September 16 and Wednesday, September 14 from 5-6:00pm)

  • English Conversation Partners (ECP sessions available from September 19 onwards) – students can practice “conversational” English

  • First Year Experience Program (August onwards) – Every international student will be assigned an upper year mentor

We will inform students in the upcoming weeks of any location changes. As previously stated registration for these essential events are now available online. Alternatively students can register for other events at the Welcome Booth. In addition to the ISC sessions, there are also campus-wide orientation, residence orientation and faculty events that students should be aware of.

Feel free to contact us at for any pre-arrival or other questions you may have. Mentors will be in contact with new students in the upcoming weeks. Welcome again to UTSC and we look forward to meeting you!
