Summer Academic Orientation

Get connected, learn more about Western, explore campus and meet members of our community before you begin school in September. By attending SAO, you will:

  • Meet with a faculty member of academic advisor who will counsel you on the appropriate first-year courses for your intended program (or review the courses in which you have already registered)
  • Create or adjust a personalized timetable, with assistance, and register for your courses
  • Learn about Western services, the campus and university life
  • Have the opportunity to participate in an optional campus tour
  • Meet other first-year students in your program


The BMSUE Office encourages all students admitted to Medical Sciences First Entry to register for their courses as soon as they are able to do so, even before their SAO session. First-year students will randomly be assigned enrollment times on June 16th, from 9:30 a.m. onward.
