First at Fleming

A summer transition program.

First at Fleming is a transition/orientation program for students registered with Accessible Education Services (AES).

Any student who is registered with AES, and who is entering into their first semester of a diploma or certificate program, can apply for the First at Fleming program.

If you are ready to apply, go to Next Steps located at the bottom this page.

What is involved? By participating in the program, students will:

  • Learn more about the transition from high school to College and hear from other students and Faculty about their experiences
  • Become more familiar with their AES team amongst other supports on campus available to support them
  • Gain confidence in using D2L as an online platform in preparation for the start of the semester

If I apply for First at Fleming, do I have to register with AES too?

Yes, students must register with AES before applying to attend the First at Fleming program. During the AES registration process, your disability counsellor will discuss the program with you and will invite you to attend this informative program to help support your transition to College.

Can parents attend?

There is a dedicated session for parents at the end of the day that we encourage all parents to attend. In that session we will discuss the types of services available, student responsibility and the Bursary for Students with Disabilities (BSWD). There will be ample time for questions and parents are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to learn more.

Is there a fee?

No, there is no fee for students to participate in the First at Fleming program.

What is the schedule for the one-day program?

Closer to the date of the program, more details will be sent via email to students who have applied to the program where an outline will be provided for the day.
